After some deliberations, we have come up with our 4 winners. This was not an easy task as there were so many great videos. No BS, they were seriously good. So to reward all who submitted videos, we will send you out an OzBargin T-shirt. If you already have t-shirt 1.0, we will send v2.0 once they arrive.

For the winners, please make sure the email address registered in your account is valid.

Description

Any short video with the theme of OzBargain.

It could be "Life as an OzBargainer" or "What it is to be an OzBargainer" . You could show us how to pricematch, Broden, Harvey Norman professional or Scotty doesn't know. It's up to you.

How to make the video?

I used my PC and Camtasia Studio but you can use Vine (iOS, 6 second videos), your SLR, or whatever method you choose as long as the video is publicly viewable on the Internet.

Samples:

Here is something I whipped up tonight (I'm not a pro). Broden: Let's Make Money

If you can remember back 4 or so years ago, we had a similar contest, in which the winner produced this awesome video

        If Simon Cowell was a judge in this competition, I would be sure he would have puked after watching Jackbob's video.

      My entry was supposed to be a joke but judging by this it could actually be true!

    • +3 votes

      It concerns me that in your video the condom has an expiry date of 2001 … going through a bit of a dry spell?

      regardless, make sure you dont use it - expired condoms have much higher rates of failure(pregnancy and STI) and causing irritation.

        Absolute Gold!

      •  

        haha, well I don't know what could have been worse having a condom which expired in 2001 or the fact that I would have been 9 years old when it expired. Sex before my teens, oh dear!!!

        I put the way out of date condom in this video on purpose as a joke of course. As to how I acquired this I will let you use your imagination. Cause using our imagination is fun.

  •  

    I have made an entry! It emulates the overwhelming nature of OzBargain's diverse range of offers.

    Hope you like it!

    My entry took a bit longer than i would of preferred it to be however i'm semi happy with the results..

      The theme for the new batch of OzBargain T-shirt is actually "Reload". Here's a preview:

    Hi everyone, here's Stuff Ozbargainers Say; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqn94zrPCyY&feature=youtu.be

  •  

    Oh no I've missed the deadline :((

    •  

      Didn't see this post either until just now! Nooooo!

      •  

        it's been sitting on the front page for weeks…

        •  

          @Yarkin Yeah. I'm a bit surprised you just saw it. Additionally, it's been in our newsletter, Facebook, Google+, & Twitter.

        •  

          OK, I'll pay more attention to the sidebar from now on. I guess I'm just too focussed on the deals!

          I doubt I could have outdone the other awesome entries!

      •  

        maybe you can still make one and post it.. Just for our viewing pleasure and feedbacks. Think of it as a practice run for next year

  • +6 votes

    The competition is now closed. I'm blown away by some of the creative videos submitted here. If OzBargain ever decides to advertise on TV, we know where to look.

    We'll have a discussion and pick the winners this week.
