Celldweller & FiXT have announced their first ever contest geared specifically at gamers and YouTubers. The “First Person Shooter” Video Game Editing Contest allows gamers to record their gameplay experiences and sync it up with Celldweller’s track “First Person Shooter” off of the new album ‘Soundtrack For The Voices In My Head, Vol. 02′ (SVH02). Participants will be competing for a chance to gain both notoriety and a plethora of prizes valued over $750 including the entire Celldweller discography along with a large variety of Celldweller merchandise, premium Xsplit streaming licenses, Gamer Grub, Gaming T-shirts, and more. All contest entrants receive a free digital copy of Celldweller’s SVH02 just for participating, and the 10 finalists for the contest will also receive cool bonuses from Celldweller & XSplit.

The contest launched August 10 and has seen a massive response in the first week, seeing thousands of hits to the announcement videos, over 500 downloads of the entry assets and already over 55 video entries submitted with hundreds of views each in the first 10 days. To participate in the contest, gamers need to head to the FiXT or Celldweller Facebook page and click the FPS Contest App, download the assets, record some gaming, make their video, and submit it to FiXT via one of the common file-sharing services out on the web.

To assist with narrowing down a set group of 10 finalists for the contest, Celldweller & FiXT have partnered with a large variety of YouTube gaming personalities and professionals with expertise in different styles of games to act as a panel of judges. Judges include players from the MMO Elites ‘Dara Mactire‘ (WoW, Star Wars) players Mercader, Bahjeera, Hobbs, and Boogie, TGN Network personalities (http://youtube.com/TGN), Swifty (WoW, SwiftyIRL), Ciji ‘Starslay3r’ Thornton (TV Series: WCG Ultimate Gamer & THE TESTER), and the sniper extraordinaire Steve Schwindt (IGN Network; http://youtube.com/steveschwindt). The grand prize winner will be chosen from the 10 finalists by fan votes.
