Rumor has it that someone once said that nothing creative has ever come out of BlackBerry. I think several people around the CrackBerry community would disagree with that, and in fact take offense to such a statement. As such, this is the perfect time to launch our latest ongoing contest! Those of you with a BlackBerry Z10 or a developer unit have surely had the opportunity by now to explore the new app Story Maker. If not, you're going to want to get familiar with it soon because to enter this contest you need to show us your best Story Maker creation!

Head on over to the thread at the link below and embed your favorite Story Maker creation. That's right, embed the video into the thread. You can upload it to Youtube and keep it unlisted if you like, and delete it after the contest, but in order to enter the contest the video needs to be embedded in the thread. Feel free to give us some background information about your video, and be as creative as you like with it. It would be extra cool if all of the pictures/video you use were taken with your BlackBerry 10 device as well, but it's not a requirement.

As mentioned, we're going to make this an ongoing contest so more people have a chance to win, and so that those of you waiting for the BlackBerry Q10 also have a chance to enter. For the first contest, we aren't setting a theme, though future contests will have themes to make it more interesting. Everyone is eligible to enter, but please keep it to one entry per contest.

And yes, contests have prizes! So what are these prizes, you ask? We're thinking along the lines of fantastic CrackBerry swag, gift certificates to ShopCrackBerry, and whatever else we have laying around to throw in from time to time. Need some tips to help you get started? Check out the links below for more info on Story Maker and uploading your videos to Youtube. And most important, have fun!
