It's the freakin' weekend, and since you're going to have sex anyway—might as well film it, and enter it in the HUMP! 2012 amateur porn competition! As you know, HUMP! is our annual contest that allows you to be a porn star for the weekend, by making your own five minute hot, hilarious, and horny homemade XXX movie. And if it makes the cut, it'll be screened at the HUMP! festival at Cinema 21 with a bunch of other finalists—after which all copies will be DESTROYED in order to protect your precious reputation.

Best of all? YOU COULD WIN THE GRAND PRIZE OF $5000! Here are the deets:

The Stranger and the Portland Mercury once again invite amateur filmmakers, porn stars, porn-star wannabes, hotties, kinksters, regular folks, and all other creative types to make short porn films—five minutes max—for HUMP!™ 2012. Films selected for HUMP!™ 2012 will be screened over three weekends in November at theaters in Seattle, Portland, and Olympia. HUMP!™ 2012 films can be hardcore, softcore, live action, animated, kinky, vanilla, straight, gay, lez, bi, trans, genderqueer — anything goes at HUMP!™ (Well, almost anything: No poop, no animals, no minors.) Deadline for HUMP!™ submissions is October 5, 2012.
