Uploading Your Videos

  1. Create an account if you don't already have one. If you have a Gmail account, you already have a YouTube account! Safety Tip: Use a screen name that doesn't reveal your actual identity or location.​

  2. Click the little video camera icon to the right of the search bar. Then select "upload video".

3.  Select your privacy settings. Then select the movie file to upload. Your privacy choices are:

  • Public: Public videos can be seen  and shared by anyone using YouTube. They're posted on your channel when you upload them and show up in search results and related video lists.

  • Unlisted: Unlisted videos can be seen and shared by anyone with a link. Your unlisted videos won't appear to others who visit the "Videos" tab of your channel page and shouldn't show up in YouTube's search results unless someone adds your unlisted video to a public playlist. 

  • Private: Private videos can only be seen by you and the users you choose. They cannot be entered into our contest because the link cannot be shared to our contest site.

4.  Wait for your your video to upload. This may take a few minutes.

5.  That's it! Now just copy the link into the contest entry form.
