Thank you everyone for waiting patiently. Our contest is finally underway. In our attempt to inspire the photo and video community to begin creating BTS (behind the scenes) videos of their photography and video projects, we are giving away a new HD capable DSLR to the creator of the best BTS video. This contest will accept video submissions from today to August 1st. After August 1st we will choose our favorite 5 to 10 videos and allow the Fstoppers community to vote on their favorite video. The winner of this contest will get to choose a prize of either a new Canon 7D or a Nikon D300s.
This contest is not about creating the most flashy or well shot BTS video. Instead, we want you guys to focus on making your BTS video as informative and fun to watch as possible. A big factor in the success of your video will be the project itself meaning, if you are shooting a BTS of a photoshoot and the shoot itself is boring, your BTS video may not do very well. Try to come up with something creative and unique.
If you are shooting a BTS of a photoshoot please put the images from the shoot in the video. If you are shooting a BTS of a video project then you will have 2 videos (the finished project and the BTS).
The contest has 3 very simple rules:
1. The video must be created between now and August 1
2. The video must mention Fstoppers in it (verbally or in text form)
3. The video must be posted uploaded to Youtube or Vimeo and then posted on www.fstoppersforum.com
Patrick and I will be creating a video in next few weeks to inspire you guys (don't worry we are not putting ourselves in the contest). Now let's get off our lazy asses and go create!
