Helpful Tips:

 Remember that your audience is waiting for a rock concert to start

  • don’t submit a documentary with sub titles
  • keep your content light, funny, and visual

     Please keep your content under 3 minutes (including credits)

  • if your submission is slightly over 3 minutes, we may still accept it; however you are getting judged for your editing expertise so you will get lower marks for failing to edit within the rules
