DJI and SkyPixel, a popular online platform for aerial photography, have launched their annual video competition. There are prizes worth a total of USD $48,600 to be won.
The contest categories
Similar to previous years, participants can submit their best three-minute videos in three categories. This year the categories are as follows:
- Big Moments Start Small: Create a video showcasing the small, lightweight design of your camera device and your best cinematic scenes. Users are recommended to include at least 10 seconds of behind-the-scenes clips of their product such as DJI Osmo Pocket or other devices.
- Make Your Move: Create a video showcasing the stabilized footage from your device. Users are recommended to include at least 10 seconds of behind-the-scenes clips of their product such as DJI Osmo Series or other devices.
- Adventure Starts With You: Create a short, cinematic narrative film to showcase your creative skills and visual effects. Users are recommended to include at least 10 seconds of behind-the-scenes clips of their product such as DJI Ronin Series or other devices.
What are the prizes?
There are prizes worth a total of $48,600 to be won, including a Ronin SC Combo, Osmo Action and WD My Passport Wireless 2 TB SDD hard drive worth a good $1600.
Who can participate?
Everyone may participate and submit any number videos. There is no restriction on the type or brand of equipment participants use for the videos. However, with regard to the categories advertised, you can think that it is “helpful” to use DJI products and make them look good – the best entries will be presented on the SkyPixel website and on the DJI’s social media platforms.
The 2019 SkyPixel Short Film Contest will accept entries from August 15, 2019 to October 14, 2019. There’ll be a total of 100 winners announced on October 30.
3-minute video is done quickly and there will be 100 winners instead of just one main prize – so it might be worth trying!
