New and Notable Video Contests - Week of March 17
'Hapless and Hopeless' Vocab Video Contest: http://bit.ly/NRN7WD
Biggest cash prize: $23,500 in the Ritas ‘Unexpected Fun’ Video Project, brought to you by Tongal. This is the 4th Bud Light Ritas project that’s been launched on Tongal so far this year, and I don’t know about you, but my curiosity is piqued…we might have to pick some up to try soon. While each brief has a slightly different angle, this one is the most wide open. Ritas are simply asking you to convey the fun outgoing side of the brand’s personality. Do it with a :15, :30 and :90 cut of your commercial, and you could be one of four winners in the video round. Open worldwide, 21 and older. Pitch to earn a production budget by March 25th, otherwise final videos are due April 22nd.
Best prize: Two days of cat skiing + $1000 in the 'Know the Snow' Video Contest. Think you know the snow? Create a 4-minutes-or-less video that shows how you prep for backcountry skiing/riding, and you could have your choice of a number of snowsports-related prizes. Open to US residents. Due April 7th.
Best trip: An all-expenses paid trip for 2 to San Diego Comic-Con in the Pi Day #BeIrrational Instagram Contest. Nerdist Industries, Hot Topic and Her Universe have teamed up to bring you this geeky opportunity. All you need to do is submit a Pi-themed 15-second video to Instagram. One winner will be chosen to attend Sad Diego Comic-Con with a friend this July, including flights, hotel accommodations, tickets and $500 spending money. Open to US resident, 13 and older. Due March 31st.
OVC’s Pick of the Week: Our overall favorite contest this week is the Lufthansa #inspiredby #istanbul Video Contest. If you’ve always wanted to visit the ancient, bustling city of Istanbul, this contest presents a unique opportunity. Lufthansa is seeking someone who is truly inspired by Istanbul to create a series of travel videos (they’ll provide the crew and script). One winner will be chosen for this gig, which is currently scheduled for May, and includes round trip travel, 3-nights accommodation and 500 EUR in pocket money. If this sounds like your dream job, plead your case in a 45-60 second video. Open worldwide, 18 and older. Hurry, final videos are due March 24th.
