WHAT ARE WE
LOOKING FOR?

We will judge the entries on not only your photo or video but the story behind it. We aren’t necessarily looking for someone that can shoot a perfectly executed photo on a top of the line SLR. So whatever camera you choose, we will be judging each moment on what the piece of content makes us feel. That’s why each entry requires you to write 200 words.

The content also doesn’t have to be shot specifically for this comp. So go back through your back catalogue and share it with the world. You never know.

There are three types of content you can submit, listed below. We will judge them on the same criteria, and there will be only one winner.

SINGLE IMAGE

Requirements are:

1 image
Max file size 5mb
File type .jpg .png
200-word max story about your moment

IMAGE SET

Sometimes there are multiple moments worth capturing. Here you can showcase a cumulation of moments. Can be shot on anything you like as long as it fits the below requirements.

10 images max
Max file size 2mb each
File type .jpg .png
200-word max story about your moment

VIDEO CLIP

Got a funny moment caught on video or pulled together an epic clip and put it to music? We would love to see it. We are not looking for documentary length just a 15 second clip to showcase your creativity.

Requirements are:

Max file size 50mb
File type .mp4 .mov
200-word max story about your moment
