DJI and SkyPixel have launched the first short film contest inviting users to submit their cinematic stories shot with camera and gimbal products.
The 2019 SkyPixel Short Film Contest is accepting entries until October 14 and welcomes submissions from hobbyists to social media users and professional videographers around the globe.
It consists of three storytelling categories—‘Big Moments Start Small,’ ‘Make Your Move’ and ‘Adventure Starts With You.’
There is no restriction on the type or brand of equipment participants use and can submit as many videos as they wish.
A total of 100 winners can win a range of prizes totalling £40,100 in categories including Recommended Films, Best Editing, Best Story, Nominated Entries, People’s Choice Prize as well as This Week’s Most Popular, sponsored by the partner SanDisk and WD brand from Western Digital Corp.
This year’s Best Short Video winners will each receive the new Ronin-SC Pro Combo, Osmo Action as well as WD 2TB My Passport Wireless SSD.
Winning entries will also be showcased on the SkyPixel website as well as to DJI’s social media platforms.
Basile David, director of brand and content partnerships at DJI, commented: “DJI has redefined how people capture stable video for all of life’s moments. The compact size, portability and powerful imaging system of our Osmo and Ronin series have also made it possible for anyone to take their creativity and inspirations to the next level.”
Adding: “With this contest, we hope to encourage more people to embrace and share their own creative way of storytelling.”
The winner will be announced on October 31.
