Social Media Festival Competition Long List

We have had many interesting entries for the myMOSI Social Media Festival today. Below is the long list of entries, and at the start of the event at the CornerHouse Annexe today, September 23rd 2011, we will announce a short list of the best 5.
Winner to be announced at the end of the Festival and posted on this website on Monday September 25th. Please come along to the Festival and vote for your favourite 🙂
Thanks to Beth Powell, our star organiser for co-ordinating this and suggesting the evaluation criteria.

Judging Criteria
1. Creativity and originality in developing a myMOSI story
2. Relevance to Manchester (the ‘Science and Industry’ element is open to interpretation, but there does need to be a cultural, historical, industrial, or personal link to Manchester)
3. Interest; how compelling is the story, or presentation
4. Technical quality (we are not expecting full Hollywood-style productions but all other things being equal, a film that is in focus, well lit, decently edited and audible will be judged more favourably)
