Will the Early Bird prize winner be announced early, or will it be announced with the other prizes after the contest is over?

Thanks for your reply.

An excellent question! Generally our Early Entry award winners are announced early, but how early is at the discretion of Margaritaville. Not to mention that the fantastic community uploaded so many quality submissions, that they have a lot of hard decisions to make.

It will probably be 1-2 weeks from the Early Entry deadline.

Hi ZooppaUSA! I just have a quick question. I successfully uploaded my video last night. However, every time I click on the link from the page that has all of the video’s attached to it, once it has gone to specifically my video, it says “Error: no resource found. Please reload the page or check the link.” However, when I click on the author name to look at all the video’s we’ve done, it’s there and it’s just fine. What is causing this error message? I would really prefer to not send out a link that will cause people to not go through extra steps just to see the video.

Thanks so much,

Christina and Serena

I clicked in from the videos page, and your video played great. Try clearing your browsing history and cookies, and try again. I’ll look into it on this end, but at the moment can’t replicate the issue.

Was the early entry video already awarded for this? I see the Captian Compardi video by the award?

Hey there, DeepEndFilms! Yes indeed, the Captain is the winner. We now know that one of his secrets is the secret to winning.

I just wanted to let you know that the actress doing the ice-cube tray bit in your piece made me laugh really loud in the office here. Classic. They rest of your commercial was really funny too, great work!

Was wondering if you knew if the grand prize video was the same one that won early entry award?

Zooppa, you really need to get your act together. People will understand if there are delays because a company isn’t doing things on time, but you need to be a little transparent about it. It’s incredibly frustrating to just be sitting around over a week after the winners were supposed to be announced without so much as an apology, explanation, revised schedule, or even acknowledgement that you’re behind, this is extremely unprofessional.

Hi Gang!

Ian here, getting his act together. Apologies on the delay, we’re still waiting to hear on the rest of the winners from Margaritaville, I’ll let you all know as soon as I know.

For now, sit back, relax, and enjoy this song.

It’s taking quite awhile for them to pick the other winners after announcing the grand prize winner already. I’m sure everyone would like to know what is going on Zooppa?

Still waiting to hear…

…I think this makes it all extra exciting. It’s the anticipation, I think, that makes a contest a winner, not the cash.

Who’s with me? Shall we award in anticipation and not cash? Show of hands….

But seriously folks, I hope to hear sometime this week.
