Xfire, Inc. - a division of Viacom Inc.â€™s MTV Networks and one of the fastest growing online gaming platforms and communities in the world - today announced the finalists for the â€œWorld of Warcraft Summer Movie Contest.â€ With $23,000 in prizes up for grabs, gamers are invited to visit Xfire.com to view the exceptional Machinima movies and vote for their favorite finalists.
â€œWe are absolutely astounded by the quality of the submissions that we have received this year,â€ said Mike Cassidy, CEO of Xfire. â€œIt has been extremely difficult for us to narrow it down to just 20 finalists in four categories, and I expect it will be just as hard for our members to select their favorites.â€
For the â€œWorld of Warcraft Summer Movie Contest,â€ Xfire tapped into its 5 million-user base and the millions of World of Warcraft players, welcoming entrants from Canada, Europe and the United States to create movies using Blizzardâ€™s wildly popular massively multiplayer online game, World of Warcraft. Five outstanding contest finalists were selected from each of the following four categories: Short Film, Comedy, Music Video/Dance and Drama/Action. Gamers have until Monday, October 23 to select and vote for their favorites. Contest winners will be announced on Thursday, October 26.
