New and Notable Video Contests - Week of October 17th
Is there anything better than a Fall weekend? ‘The Walking Dead’ is back on TV, the weather is starting to get cool, and I’m about 4 Pumpkin Spice Lattes in. Things are looking good at OVC! Now it’s time to sit back, relax and let us tell you about the best video contests on the interwebs.
Biggest cash prize: $20,000 in the Wearsafe Animation Video Project, brought to you by Tongal. Wearsafe is looking for one talented animator to create two fun and engaging 2D Animation Videos that showcase the ways in which technology has evolved since 9-1-1 was invented and explain why it’s time to finally upgrade our safety too.
Open to Tongal community members (it’s free to register!), ages 13 and older.
Hurry - pitches are due October 25th
Best non-cash prize: $7500 STEM educational grant for your school in the DowCorps 'Innovative Chemistry’ Video Contest. In a 60-second video, answer the question: How do you think chemistry and STEM will change products we use every day in the future? You should use your video as a platform to demonstrate an innovative & sustainable chemistry improvement idea for how you see something evolving in the future. The more imaginative you get with your ideas and videos, the better your chances are of winning a top prize!
Open to K-8 schools in the U.S.
Due November 13th
Best trip: A trip for two to the 2017 National Spelling Bee in the 2017 'Spellebrity’ Video Contest. This is an opportunity for students to spell out ways to encourage others to read through fun, narrative videos that also feature three words that would be useful to know in a spelling bee — words you have learned through your reading. Teams of up to 4 students brainstorm, film and edit videos of up to five minutes in length and the top teams will be rewarded with an expenses-paid trip to the 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee!
Open to legal US residents who are currently enrolled as a full-time student in grades 1 through 8 (or equivalent).
Due January 30th
OVC’s Pick of the Week: Overall, our favorite video contest of the week is the Denver Broncos Sack Dance Challenge. Excessive celebrations are banned by the NFL, but you’re free to show off your best Funky Chicken or any other dance you can think of. The best performance wins 2 tickets to the Nov. 27 home game against the Chiefs!
Open to Indi.com members (it’s free to register), ages 18 and older.
Due November 15th
