It’s been two weeks since we launched the RuneScape machinima competition and we’ve watched around 700 entries so far! The deadline to submit videos is at midnight tonight (23:59 BST), so there’s still a little time left to put the finishing touches to your films and enter them into the competition.
Once the deadline passes, we’ll spend the next week getting the remaining entries added to the youtube.com/runescape channel. Following this, Jagex’s judges will make a shortlist of their top five films, then, in the first week of September, we’ll be running a player poll on the RuneScape website. The RuneScape community can choose their favourite from those final five, which will determine the overall winner.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support, their messages and, of course, their videos. We knew that there were some really talented players out there, but had no idea there were quite so many! Finally, we’d also like to thank entrants for their patience as, due to the scale of the response, it is taking us slightly longer than anticipated to add all entries to the channel. Don’t worry, they will all be added, so the thousands who have subscribed to the channel will be able to view them all.
