The Oscars are just around the corner and we’re excited to announce that Magisto has teamed up with Netted by the Webbys to get in on the action with an Academy Award-inspired competition of our own!  Introducing “The SmartPhonies: One-Minute Movie Awards”–a contest where you’re invited to show off your movie-making skills for a chance to win one of four Nexus 7 tablets.

Here’s how it works:

1. Get the Magisto app for iPhone or Android (if you haven’t already), or head over to Magisto.com to use our web app.

2. Create a movie!  Upload some prerecorded clips or use Magisto to shoot some new ones, select music, give your movie a title and let Magisto work its magic, creating your movie for you.

3. Be sure to add #WIN to your title (for example, “My Ridiculously Cute Puppy #WIN”) so we’ll know you’d like us to enter your movie in The SmartPhonies.

Once your movie has been produced with #WIN in the title, you’ll automatically be entered in the competition.  Be sure to share your movie with all of your friends and ask them to like it because the 100 most-liked and most-viewed movies will move on to the next step in the competition!

The editorial staff at Netted will review the most popular entries and select five finalists in each of four categories–Humor, Pets, Action Sports and Wild Card.  Once the finalists are selected, we’ll open things up to a public vote from March 4 through March 10 and let you decide which movie maker in each category deserves to win a Nexus 7!

Find out more on our contest page at Netted.net/magisto.  All entries must be submitted by midnight on February 28, 2013. Good luck and happy movie making!
