New and Notable Video Contests - Week of April 7

Biggest cash prize: $8,000 + a trip to Brazil in the World Cup 2014: The Nature Conservancy Contest, brought to you by MOFILM. Where does water come from? That is the question that the Nature Conservancy wants you to ponder, and in turn answer, in a short film. Get people thinking about where water comes from so ultimately they will want to conserve this precious resource. Open worldwide, 16 and older. Pitch to earn a production budget by April 14th, otherwise final videos are due May 12th.

Best prize: A $6,500 Sony Entertainment Package in the 'I Love SkyMall' Video Contest. When you’re stuck on a 4-hour flight and have a hankering for off-the-wall products that might make your life better, but at the very least entertain you for a few minutes, SkyMall is your magazine. Share why you love SkyMall in a 15-second to 2-minute video and you could win a Sony Entertainment Package that includes a 4k Ultra HD TV, camcorder and camera lens, or one of  seven Runner-Up prizes consisting of SkyMall gift cards. Open to US residents, 18 and older. Due June 30th.

OVC’s Pick of the Week: Our overall favorite contest this week is the Photodex ‘The Ultimate Story’ Video Contest. We like this contest because the brief is pretty wide open. All you need to do is tell a story using both video and still images. It seems like this contest is geared more towards photographers, so if you get creative with the medium, we think OVCers have the potential to really blow the judges away. One Grand Prize winner will walk away with a Panasonic LUMIX GH3 with 20mm lens, a $500 gift card to Profoto and more! Open worldwide, and due June 10th.

New and Notable Video Contests - Week of March 31

Biggest cash prize: $21,000 in the 'NAPA Auto Parts Salutes the Military' Project, brought to you by a brand-new video contest platform called Whadif. They are running this project is 4 phases from Concept to Storyboard to Rough Cut to Final Production. NAPA Auto parts is ultimately seeking an ad that marries patriotism and inspiration with blue collar values. Open worldwide, 18 and older. The last phase open to the public will close May 9th.

Best prize: A FOUR 3-day Park Hopper tickets to Disneyland or Disney World in the One2One Network ‘#DisneySingIntoSpring’ Contest. If the changing seasons puts a spring in your step and a song in your heart, it’s time to share that feeling in a video. Sing 30-seconds of your favorite Disney song and you could win passes to a Disney theme park or a bunch of swag from Walt Disney Records. Open to US residents, 18 and older. Due April 18th.

Best trip: A 3-week sailing expedition between Bermuda and Iceland in the 5 Gyres Viking Expedition Video Contest. This is not a contest for wallflowers, but if you’re up for some adventure this summer, it may just be for you. People with an interest in plastic pollution, the environment and/or the high seas are invited to submit a video on why they should be chosen for this trip, and what they’ll do with the knowledge learned from the expedition to solve plastic pollution in their community. Open worldwide, 18 and older. Due April 22nd.

OVC’s Pick of the Week: Our overall favorite contest this week is the Lee Kum Kee Video Contest, brought to you by Eyeka. With over 125 years in the biz, Lee Kum Kee represents the highest standard of Asia’s best condiments. For this contest, they want you to make a spot that shows how an ordinary food moment gets elevated with the use of their products. We may or may not have picked this contest based solely on the fact that it made us crave Chinese food, but it’s also good because it’s open worldwide and three videos will earn cash prizes. The Grand Prize is 8,000€ - or roughly $11,000 US. Make sure to get your video in by May 7th.

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.
