KINKS competition – is being racist the only option?

On 01, May 2011 | No Comments | In Blog, Kinks 2011 | By admin

Hi everybody,

if you haven’t read or heard about our ongoing KINKS the movie competition, here’s the link:

And we are extending our deadline! NEW DEADLINE: JULY 1st

Entries trickled in slowly this month. To make things worse the one eligible entry which got most hits was racist. Hence we disqualified the submission. (However it is remarkable how fast you can get attention, if you hit a sensitive nerve.)

But we REFUSE TO BELIEVE that publicity can only be achieved with tasteless or racist entries. KINKS stands for the message that we are all human and that’s the message we want to spread.

Let’s show the world that FUNNY and CUTE entries have as much power. Looking forward to more submissions! Help us spreading the love!

Feel free to comment on the existing entries. Feel free to drop us comments on how to improve our competition. We will continue and disqualify entries not appropriate – you are the judges.

Btw, if you want to do a submission, but you have trouble gathering the hardware or manpower to do it, we are happy to help you out!

All the best, the KINKS team
