Awesome StarCraft 2 Video Contest Prizes are Awesome

Blizzard is giving the creative portion of the StarCraft 2 community a shot at this sexy set of peripherals via a brand new StarCraft 2 Video Contest!

The rules are simple: Create a video, in any genre, with StarCraft II as the central theme. Whether it’s machinima, your own Battle Report-style highlights video, a live-action music or skit, or something else entirely. What could be easier? For full rules and disclosures on how to submit your work, take a look at the legal page.

Just make sure you follow these 4 important steps to win:

  1. Your video cannot exceed 5 minutes in length and 150mb in size.
  2. The video must be encoded as AVI, Quicktime, DivX, Xvid or Windows Media Video (WMV)
  3. The resolution must be 1280 x 720.
  4. A 120 word summary of your submission must be provided.

In another announcement today, Blizzard have advertised their plans to sell a limited-release Collector’s Edition of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, a package priced at $99.99 that will include the following:

  • The Art of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, a 176-page book featuring artwork from the game
  • An exclusive 2GB USB flash drive replica of Jim Raynor’s dog tag, which comes preloaded with the original StarCraft and the StarCraft: Brood War® expansion set
  • A behind-the-scenes DVD containing over an hour of developer interviews, cinematics with director’s commentary, and more.
  • The official StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty soundtrack CD, containing 14 epic tracks from the game along with exclusive bonus tracks
  • StarCraft comic book issue #0, a prequel to the comic series
  • A World of Warcraft® mini Thor in-game pet that can be applied to all World of Warcraft characters on a single Battle.net account
  • Exclusive Battle.net downloadable content, including special portraits for your Battle.net profile, decals to customize your units in-game, and a visually unique version of the terran Thor unit.

That’s quite a serious pack of awesome – an actual in-game, visually unique version of the Thor, the StarCraft 2 soundtrack CD, and a 2GB USB dog tag flash drive.

Video contests often result in healthy dosages of awesome creative content, so if you’d like to show off your submissions, don’t shy away from posting them on our Facebook page.
