hex168 reveals another Xbox 360 contest

The countdown ended a bit ago and basically, it seems like you have to submit pictures or video of wierd stuff in a bid to become one of 360 who will win a free Xbox 360 and three games (6 days before official release perhaps?) and get flown to a release event or something. It would be cool to get one for free and all but it's a little hazy on what exactly they're looking for. Here's the official legal mumbo-jumbo:

1) PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: No purchase necessary to enter or win. The Hex 168 Contest (the "Contest") is a skill contest in which participants can submit a photograph or video exhibiting "the power of hex", defined as the unusual among the mundane, for a chance to win. The promotion begins at 12:00 p.m. PT on October 18, 2005 and ends at 11:59 p.m. PT on November 4, 2005 ("Entry Period").

2) HOW TO ENTER: Access the Hex 168 website online at http://www.hex168.com. Complete the online entry form as instructed and click to submit. You will then be prompted to submit your entry materials. To submit your entry materials, create a "Researcher ID", enter the title of your entry submission, a brief description of your submission (max: 50 words), indicate the category for which you wish to be eligible (0-1 persons, 6 persons, 30 persons), and upload your photo submission (for any category) or video submission (for the 6 person and 30 person categories only) (the "entry"). After proper submission of your entry materials, you will receive a confirming e-mail at the e-mail address submitted at the time of entry. Click the link provided in the e-mail message to confirm and complete your submission. You must click the link in the e-mail confirmation you received to confirm and complete submission of your entry.

Entry Categories and Limitations: Entries in the 0-1 person category must feature an occurrence of "the power of hex" with zero persons or an occurrence with one (1) person (original entrant) "under the power of the hex". Entries in the Six (6) person category must feature exactly six (6) persons (including the Original Entrant) "under the power of the hex". Entries in the Thirty (30) person category must feature exactly thirty (30) persons (including the Original Entrant) "under the power of the hex." Your entry submission may contain a total of as many individuals are you like. However, all entry submissions must feature exactly the total number of participants "under the power of hex", (including the Original Entrant and Participating Entities) for the category for which it is being submitted and only those individuals "under the power of hex" will receive a prize if your entry is selected as a winner. Entries which feature either too few or too many participants "under the power of hex" for the category for which it is submitted will be disqualified.

Video Requirements: Videos must be a minimum of twenty (20) seconds and a maximum of forty (40) seconds in length, and must be in one of the following formats: MPEG, WMW, AVI, or QuickTime. Limit: 8 MB file size.

Photo Requirements: Digital photos must be in .jpg or .tif format and have a maximum file size of 5 MB per photo.
