Pimp My LugRadio
The LugRadio Christmas 2007 competition is now closed: winners were announced in Season 5 Episode 12!
The idea of the competition was to produce something that could be used to promote LugRadio -- a video, an audio trailer, a poster, anything. We got loads of great entries -- thanks very much to everyone who entered!
Big congratulations to our Best of Show winner, Sean Ellis, for this magnificent video! Sean gets an Asus EEE PC, kindly provided by EfficientPC!
See Sean's winning entry at blip.tv or download it directly. Sean also sent us the audio track from the video as an entry in its own right: listen to it in ogg format (mirrored at lugradio.org). Well done, Sean!
Honourable mentions go out to our two runners up, both of whom will receive LugRadio t-shirts.
- Craig Maloney: audio trailer: download Ogg Vorbis
- Milan Babuskov: video trailer, backing music is "One of My Friends" from "Dreamkeeper": download Ogg Theora or watch at blip.tv
We had loads of great entries to this competition. Here's the other entries, in no particular order; they can all be used to pimp the show, and we're really grateful for everyone who gave up their time to create them for us! Sorry you didn't win; better luck next time, though!
