Thanks to the good folks at Strutta, Vancouver’s Twestival event now has its own video contest. You may have seen the quick clip from the Twestival team in Amsterdam, which basically inspired us to get this going locally.

You only have a few days to upload your video about why you use Twitter and/or why you think an event like Twestival is important (or you can run around Vancouver in a bird costume too, why not).

The entries will be judged based on popular vote (using the star system) and the winner will receive a prize pack from and Media 2 O Productions.

Visit the official contest site at to upload your video. Winners (1st, 2nd, 3rd) will be announced at Vancouver’s Twestival event on February 12th at the Opus Hotel.

Twestival is a global one-day event happening in over 180 cities to raise funds for Charity:Water. Vancouver’s event is made possible thanks to the Opus Hotel and 6S Marketing.

    For anyone who wants to add the official Twestival pre/post-roll to their video it can be downloaded here. This is the one that Twestival HQ is using for all of their video work as are a whole host of cities. Feel free to change the music too.

    Nice little vid! Super cute!

    I knew the twestival was going on in Mtl, but thanks, i didn’t know it was here in BC too.

    I’ve been following you for a while, and love your presence and the influence you have on the anglo blogosphère!

    I’m developping a project here,, and hope if I can shake hands with ya! But I figure you’ll be pretty busy. 😉 Cheers
