2013 was a pretty ridonkulous year for Tongal.com. That company just totally took off, didn’t it? It seems like I was getting 2 or 3 e-mails a week from them announcing some big ass new video contest. In fact, they’re running a contest for AXE right now that’s got $100,000 in prizes. I think we can attribute some of Tongal’s recent success to the high-caliber of filmmakers that use the site.
Tongaltonians Tonglers submitted some really high quality stuff in 2013 and now the site is honoring those folks with the first ever “Tongie Awards”
The Tongies is our annual celebration of the brilliant people in our community and our chance to recognize your outstanding creative work. We combed through everything that was created on Tongal last year from Ideas to Videos and now we’re tapping YOU to decide who wins big. Visit tongal.com/tongies to cast your vote for Best Wildcard, Best Comedy, Best Original Song, and more! You’ve got until February 3 to review the nominees and vote. Winners will be announced in early April.
It looks like this contest might just be “for fun” (translation: No guaranteed prizes) but hey, if you win at least you can start calling yourself an “award-winning filmmaker!” I watched every, single finalist and here are a few of my favorites:
All these embedded videos were slowing down the site so here are a few more, in link form:
McDonald’s Fish McBites may already be extinct but that song will definitely live inside my head for the rest of my life. FISHY, FISHY, YEAOOWWW!
