HuffPo Contagious Festival Jury Hijinx

Congratulations to Paul Hipp, who won the Jury Prize in last month’s Huffington Post Contagious Festival, which seeks to honor those who create the cute little internet videos that your more annoying friends email you six times a week.

Funny thing about Paul Hipp: in addition to being the Huffington Post Jury Prize winner, he is a contributor to the HuffPo and a professional colleague of jury member John Cusack.

Of course, there’s nothing in the Contagious Festival rules prohibiting F.O.H.P. from entering. And I suppose everyone’s entitled to a jury of their peers.
