New and Notable Video Contests - Week of October 7
Biggest cash prize: $21,000 in the Pantene ‘Hair So Healthy, You Shine’ Video Project, brought to you by Tongal. Pantene believes that healthy is beautiful, and when you feel beautiful, you shine from the inside out. For this project, they are asking you to capture the feeling you get when you truly shine and create a 30-60 second spot centered on health and feeling amazing. Open worldwide, ages 13 and older. Pitch to earn $1000 to create your video by October 21st. Otherwise, final videos are due November 25th.
Best Prize: $18,000 in filmmaking gear from Nikon in the Nikon ‘Everyday Cinema’ Video Contest. Create a 120–180 second video that transforms an everyday moment into a stunning cinematic short. Don’t worry, you don’t have to shoot on a Nikon camera in order to win the three great prizes being awarded by the judges. The top prize includes a Nikon D4 camera, SIX lenses, a microphone, and a wireless remote! Open to US residents, 18 and older. Due December 31st.
Best trip: A Disney Parks vacation for 4 + $10,000 in the 'Vine Your Disney Side' Video Contest. This is the biggest prize offering we’ve seen for a Vine contest to date! Create a 6-second Vine video that show’s off your “Disney side”. It’s that playful side of you that comes alive at Disney Parks or even at home. Each day between October 7th and October 31st, Disney will name a daily winner to receive $1000 and become eligible for that Grand Prize. Open to US and Canadian residents, ages 18 and older. Due October 31st.
OVC’s Pick of the Week: Since October only means one thing in our minds (Halloween), this week’s pick isn’t a single contest, but rather the ‘Halloween’ tag on OVC. This is the time of year that we’re in the mood for scary, creepy, unimaginable horror, and these contests tagged ‘Halloween’ all dare you to get in touch with your inner evil genius in some way or another. We’re sure there will be more to come as October advances on, but so far our favorite ‘Halloween’ - themed contest is the 'Scary Words' Vocab Video Contest, brought to you by Project ED. They’ve given filmmakers a list of 10 spooky words, and it’s up to you to choose one and make a 60-second vocab video bringing it to life it all it’s gory detail. Two winners will each receive $1000, plus selected Finalists will earn $200 each. Open to US and Canadian residents, ages 13 and older. Due October 22nd.
