- make sure you use Mentos and Coke Zero for your video (not the normal Coke so that you won't have branding issues and getting a better chance to win this contest)
- video should not exceed 2MB avi format size. To meet the maximum requirement, you could either...
a) cut your video clip into a smaller segment that meets the max 2MB requirement
b) reduce the quality/resolution of your video using video editing software
c) reduce the frame rate of your video. Most video cameras record your video clips at 15 frames per sec. Lower it to something like 10 to 12 frames per sec. It might make your video look a little choppy but at least you get to meet your requirement.

- aim for one of the three criteria. If you get the highest votes, you win the iPod! Be the most creative and you also win! Creativity will be based on judges score while overall impact will be based on judges criteria (70%) and number of likes (30%).

- Deadline is on October 21, 2010.

Personal note: check out these videos and be inspired creating your own Mentos + Coke Zero experiment...

These videos may be too long to fit in a 2MB AVI format but they're so much fun to watch!
