    Are you a Guild Wars 2 fan? Do you think all your friends should play Guild Wars 2? Summon all your creative and persuasive powers and make your own one-minute Guild Wars 2 promotional video that explains why you think people should play the game at launch. Keep in mind that all entries must be in English. Two lucky fans will win a Grand Prize trip to ArenaNet's brand new studio near Seattle, Washington, and spend the day playing Guild Wars 2 with the ArenaNet dev team!

    Spread the Word

    Last year, in our Guild Wars 2 Design Manifesto Video, we talked about the key features that make Guild Wars 2 unique and appealing to all gamers, whether they like MMO games or not – dynamic events, personal story, visceral combat, and incredible visuals.

    Now we want you to pick up where we left off.

    If you're a huge Guild Wars 2 fan and you know you're going to play the game at launch, here's your chance to shine. We challenge you to create a unique, one-minute Guild Wars 2 manifesto video that shows your friends and everyone else why they should also play Guild Wars 2!

    The sky's the limit. You can do anything as long as the video is fun, engaging, and less than one minute long! We're looking for passion, creativity, and a clear understanding of Guild Wars 2's key features. Make a video blog, live action skit, infomercial, machinima, info-graphic, animation, or anything else you can dream up – as long as it shows people why Guild Wars 2 is the game for them! You can use our Guild Wars 2 Design Manifesto video as inspiration, but we're looking for you to dig deep into your creative brains and come up with original and outstanding videos!

    Why did they need to tell us the cash value of each prize and the total amount they are spending on this event when cash alternatives are not an option ? Seems a bit like they are trying to go "LOOK AT US WE ARE SPENDING $XXX ON PRIZES!!!!!".

    I like when big companies give out nice prizes like this as it shows how much they appreciate the community and the gamers, but I don't like that the feel the need to tell us the monetary value of the prizes, seems a bit "LOOK AT ME" attention seeking.

    Anyways, this is a pretty awesome competition, anyone going to be entering it ?

    Classical music is okay to use as background, i think... Nevertheless the gw soundtrack with jeremy soule is more than enough ;)
