HUMP!—the Pacific Northwest's biggest, best, and only amateur and/or locally-produced porn festival—returns this fall!
We previously announced the three extra-credit props for HUMP! 2011 (our 7th annual amateur porn competition)—Super Soakers, duct tape, and the number 7—but there was a little something we held back: HUMP!'s new prize packages. We've upped the runners-up purses in the Humor, Kink, and Sex categories from $250 to $500. And we've upped the "Best in Show" grand prize from $2,000 to $4,000. There will be seven HUMP! Awards this year:
· Best Humor: $1,000 First Prize, $500 First Runner-Up Prize
· Best Sex: $1,000 First Prize, $500 First Runner-Up Prize
· Best Kink: $1,000 First Prize, $500 First Runner-Up Prize
· Best in Show: $4,000 Grand Prize
The winners of HUMP! Awards are—as they have always been—determined by audience ballot. It's possible that a film could win more than one award: filmmakers who created a submission that was kinky and funny could take home Best Kink and Best Humor and $2,000. It's even possible that a single film—a hilariously kinky film with a scorching-hot sex scene that audiences adore—could sweep the HUMP!™ Awards and win Best Kink, Best Sex, Best Humor, Best in Show and take home $7,000.
HUMP! 7 submissions are due by October 7ish. HUMP! 2011 goes down November 3rd, 4th and 5th at On the Boards in Seattle and November 17th, 18th and 19th at Cinema 21 in Portland.
