MaxisCactus sent the following email to fansites about the deadline for the Spore UGC Contest:

Hey everyone,

I’d like to remind all of you that the deadline to enter the Spore UGC Contest is this Friday!

Using in-game tools in Spore, or the Spore Creature Creator (trial edition and complete), Spore players can upload their most creative and entertaining 60 second movie to through December 5th.

A panel of judges, including Spore creator Will Wright, will then select the best video. The winner and a guest will receive round trip airfare, 2 nights’ hotel stay, and ground transportation for the 2008 Spike Video Game Awards on Sunday, December 14th in Culver City, California.

Wish I could give it a shot but I don’t think I could even create a 5 seconds video that’s entertaining, yet alone 60!
