    great turn out, especially considering this was not very publicized. In the future, we may have to try it again... with a little more exposure and maybe some real prizes.

    I agree, I completely forgot about the contest until the polls were put on the top of the main forums page. Also if I remember correctly, the announcement was made on Page 2... thought it was quite odd.

    Fantastic competition, if I say so myself. ;) Got to give props to the czar for moderating it smoothly.

    All great entries, very creative. The race for best video ad was as tight as the time I competed in the 100-meter dash with spandex shorts one size too small. :cool:

    I already have ad ideas for the next million or 5, and it'll be in the vein of liketom's tune your run entry.

    Congrats to the winners and well done to all those who took part. :) I was going to submit an entry but was too late - I was looking at the counter on the front page, thinking I still had plenty of time. d'oh! Oh well, maybe for the 4 millionth...

    Great competition, great submissions, great winners! Kudos to the participants!!

    For prizes next time, how about engraved iPods; "Winner of MacRumors Apple Ad Competition 200X" or similar?

    I think it's a disgrace that I didn't at least reach the final... :mad:

    ...oh, wait, did I type that out loud...? :eek:


    :p :p :p

    Seriously:

    Good job everyone. Congratulations to all, especially the winners, but also all the finalists and other participants! :)

    I actually registered on this forum now only to tell you how extraordinarily great your 'generations' ad is. With a few minor changes (more non-static images and smooth transitions) this would EASILY beat Apple's own iPod ads. Talk about fantastic idea, style, and feel! Great work!!!

    ^^Wow, that's a rather nice compliment to SpicyApple. :)

    And I agree, although I do see quite a few entries in both categories that beat out Apple's own efforts, so congratulations to everyone (who did a good job). :p

    There is some really excellent work here but for me 'Generations' stands out head and shoulders - brillant. :)

    here is the first lame question of this thread. how was the "generations" video made? i wish i was that creative. even i was given a step-by-step instruction, i would never get to make it that beautiful.

    nice going guys.

    Tune your run just looked liked a low production values version of the ad that appears on the nike website, am afraid that this didn't seem to deserve any place amongst the winners. The tied video finalists were both excellent (ironic choice of song with "the winner is" or is that just extreme confidence;) ), and the print ad was by far and away the best video ipod mock up i have seen to date.

    One day, I will build this interface. I just need some help from some crazy russian scientists to create the kerenzikov neurojack and you'll see then.

    Great work.
