You may enter your video in any category, or as many categories as you wish. The judges may, on viewing your video, suggest a different category, however the final category decision is yours.

Videos may be entered up to May 31st, all videos will be posted on YouTube and there will be a prize for the video with the most likes on YouTube. Voting is open from 1st - 14th June

The aim of the competition is to encourage amateur video makers, but we have included a separate category for professional videographers. This category is for anyone who makes money from their videos or who is involved in the organization of the festival. It gives these people an opportunity to show what they do, there will be a prize for the best in the category, but a professional videographer cannot win the main prizes.

During the period leading up to the competition, we will hold a series of workshops. Each entrant will be entitled to attend one or more of these workshop. Details available soon.
