The Just a Minute Festival is an online event that celebrates short visual production made or created in any format, media or equipment: Cell phone, Film, Video, Animation, Flash, Machinima or whatever.
The maximum length of submitable productions is 1 minute.
Entered productions can be viewed and voted on through this site and will be cablecast on public stations.
Deadline for entries is October 1, 2013, Eastern (U.S.) time; no entries will be accepted on or after that day. Online voting begins on October 5, 2013. The shorts will be streamed through this site on a random basis and you can view and vote as often as you like. Once a week during the voting period, one registered voter will be picked at random to receive $20. The more you vote the better your odds. Voting ends December 1, 2013, Eastern (U.S.) time; no further votes accepted on or after that date.
Winners of the Just A Minute Festival will be chosen by the viewers and voters of this site.
