HOW IT WORKS
1 - Develop Your Submission
Whether a video, photo, or other creation, iaam and the rest of the world want to see and hear your best! Take your time and do it well. Make a rough draft. Think about it. Sleep on it. Ask your friend or parent to critique it for you. Remember it must be your own, original stuff. Finally, once you’re ready for the big time…
2 - Submit
Once you click the Submit button, your submission is unleashed in cyberspace. If we find it offensive or inappropriate, we’ll kill it on the spot, end of story. Otherwise, you get 500 iaam $$$ on the spot. We may exercise the right you have granted us to use, display, perform, and/or distribute the submission, in its original or edited form. This is how you will receive all the props and sugar-coating you deserve by hanging your name, photo, hometown, and/or other submitted personal data on your masterpiece. You could go to bed an unknown and wake up a celebrity! Although, unless your submission is drop-dead fabulous, that probably won’t happen because first you must…
3 - Get rated
While we may be easily impressed, in order to win your submission will have to impress your peers. It might take a few weeks for enough submissions to roll in (a minimum of 1000 submissions is required for each contest), and to get enough member judges to rate the submissions. The judges won’t know who you are and you won’t know them, so don’t worry about playing favorites. You say you want that kind of power? Well, you can also judge submissions in contests where you’re not submitting, and earn more iaam $$$ for doing it, so take it easy. And while you’re busy judging, doing some other important stuff, or just day-dreaming, you might just…
4 - Win!
OK, here’s the deal: if your submission is rated highest by your peers, then you win! You knew that. Yeah, but the sweet part is, if you win, you get a really cool prize or cash! Wow, how much you say? This depends on the specific contest you have entered. OK, we look forward to all of your submissions, and thanks for participating in iaam contests. You Rule!
