'What RuneScape Means To Me' video competition!

In case you’ve been living in Melzar’s Maze for the past week, you’ll know this is the year that RuneScape turns the grand old age of 15.

And, in true RuneScape style, we wanted to celebrate.

So, as well as all our awesome in-game content, and RuneScape Classic reopening next week, we’ll be producing a feature-length RuneScape Documentary, and, rather excitingly, hosting the Worldwide Premiere in London, on Thursday, February 11th.

It’s set to be a night to remember – think a RuneScape-themed Red Carpet event, with all your favourite famous players, JMods, and a few incredible surprises we’ll keep up our sleeves until the day itself.

And the most exciting part? You can be there.

Read on to find out how!

'What RuneScape Means To Me' - Video Competition

RuneScape means something different to everyone. To some, it’s friendship; to others, it’s a 15-year-old story awash with Lore.

Whatever RuneScape means to you, send us a short, 30-second video of what it is, and you’ll be entered into a draw to win entry to the Premiere of the Documentary!

Our 10 favourites will receive 2 x tickets, with one lucky winner getting a night in a top London hotel for them and a friend! We’ll show as many entries as we can during the screening of the Documentary.

Please see other stickied threads in this forum to find out more information about the other competitions/giveaways.

How can I enter the video competition?

Simply produce a video no longer than 30 seconds explaining what RuneScape means to you. This can be a machinima, Vine, real-life video, voiceover, or anything else you can come up with!

Upload your video to YouTube or any other video hosting platform, and send us a link to with your contact email address and in-game name; and that’s it.

What is the prize?

The winner will get two tickets to the 15th Birthday Documentary Premiere on Thursday, February 11th, 2016, located at Bankside Vaults, 1-4 Invicta Plaza, London, SE1 9UF as well as a night in a top London hotel, close to the premiere venue (details to be confirmed).

Four runners up will get two tickets to the 15th Birthday Documentary Premier on Thursday, February 11th, 2016, located at Bankside Vaults, 1-4 Invicta Plaza, London, SE1 9UF.

We’ll also be showing some of our favourite videos in the Documentary itself.

Please note that if you’re under 18 and win, you will need an accompanying adult (18+) to come with you. If you win a night in the hotel room, you will need to share with your accompanying adult.

NOTE: If you are the winner of this competition and are not able to attend the premier, we will be adding a whole year's membership to your RuneScape account (or a RuneScape account of your choice).

Ontop of this, five other entries will be picked at random - these five random players will also receive two tickets each to see the 15th Birthday Documentary Premiere on Thursday, February 11th, 2016, located at Bankside Vaults, 1-4 Invicta Plaza, London, SE1 9UF.

So in total, there are ten sets of two tickets to be won.

How will you select a winner?

We’ll choose our winner based on creativity, originality and quality; and they will be chosen by a combination of our Video Team and Community Team.

We will choose four of our favourites to make up our winners, and we’ll also choose five winners at random from all the entries.

Here are some tips on how to improve the quality of your video.

Shoot the video landscape not portrait.
Shoot at the highest resolution you can.
If you can choose then shoot at 25 frames per second (not essential but good).
Try to get somewhere quiet for your recording.
Be creative and play to your strengths. Not comfortable in front of a camera? Try capturing in-game footage and using that to your advantage.
If you have any RuneScape merchandise then wear it or have it in the shot with you.
Try to be in a bright location when possible to stop the image quality from getting too grainy.

How will you contact a winner?

We will contact all winners through both the email address supplied in the entry email, as well as the in-game inbox of the character name provided. You will have 7 days to claim your prize, otherwise we will choose another winner at random.

We'll attempt to contact the winners within 5 working days after the competition closes (29th January 2016) so please check your inboxes by that date if you've entered the competition.

Are there any restrictions?

Be sensible. Entries containing swearing, offensive language or any form of hate speech will be discounted; as will other entries which digress from the theme of the competition.

This is all down to our discretion.

What will you be doing with the submitted videos?

We’ll aim to get as many good-quality videos into the documentary as possible. Jagex reserves the right to use any entries submitted in any marketing material or the documentary itself – the decision will come down to our Video Team.

Due to time constraints, the videos featured may not necessarily be the finalists or the winner.

When does the competition close?

The thread will close on Sunday 24th January 2016 at 23:59 UTC. We’ll select winners in the following week.

EDIT: The FAQ has been amended to give a clear indication of what the prizes were for those that weren't able to attend the event that won this competition.

I spent 4 years and more than 1k hours on writing a 300+ page ebook documentary about the game and it's safe to say I care more about the RS history/development than anyone else, so attending the premiere would have been a dream come true, but apparently that's not good enough for "What Rs means to me". Makes you wonder what else a person has to do. Very disappointed, but congratulations to all winners.

E: I had a short chat with Andrew Gower, he helped me with my own documentary last year. Considering that I have basically dedicated the last 4 years of my RS experience to what the documentary film is all about, he's also surprised that I wasn't hand-picked. I am glad that he, being the creator of RS, can sympathize with my situation, but it only makes the disappointment so much bigger.
