First Pinax Screencast Competition

The goal is to produce a screencast up to 20 minutes long, showing what can be built with Pinax in a short amount of time.

You have 3 weeks to submit your entry or entries and then the core developers of Pinax will judge the best entries. You can submit as many times as you like.

Judging Criteria

Submissions will be judged on three criteria with certain weightings:

You can have some stuff developed in advance (i.e. the entire site you build doesn't have to be built in 20 minutes) but that's a tradeoff you have to make between the second and third criteria. More done in advance means probably a more impressive end result but shows off Pinax less; more you actually do during the screencast, might mean a less impressive result at the end but shows off Pinax more.


We require all videos to be made available under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike license so we can distribute them in edited and unedited form.


The first prize is a $100 Amazon Gift Card with a runner up prize of a $40 Amazon Gift Card. Even though you can submit more than one entry, the same person won't be able to win both prizes (even if they have the 1st and 2nd best submissions).
