Show your national pride by entering the KineMaster for the Gold Contest.

 

Nations from across the globe are gathered in South Korea for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Top tier athletes at the peak of their abilities are competing for fame, greatness, and gold. But don’t leave your country’s reputation entirely in their hands! Bring home a little glory yourself by participating in the KineMaster for the Gold Contest. We’re looking for videos that show us what you think is special about your country; no snow required.

 

Don’t worry if your country is participating in the Winter Olympics, or even if it’s winter! Citizens of almost any country can go home a winner in the KineMaster for the Gold Contest: one video from each eligible country represented will win.

SELECTION PROCESS/ PRIZES

There is one award given to the top-scoring video from each country. Between March 19 and April 2, 2018, KineMaster staff will score all video entries to determine one winner per country. Entrants will be judged with the following criteria:

  1. Production Values / Cinematography - 10 points
  2. Post-Production (KineMaster Usage Skills) - 10 points
  3. Writing / Acting - 10 points
  4. Overall Enjoyment - 10 points

 

Total Score - 40 points

 

In the event of a tie, videos will be compared by individual criteria scores, starting from number 1 above until a winner can be determined. In the event that all criteria scores are equal, the winner will be determined by a series of coin flips.

All winners will receive a 1-year subscription to KineMaster!

Winners will be announced on (or before) Tuesday, April 3, 2018 publicly via Twitter and privately via email. Please note that the name and video information provided in the submission form may be used on Twitter.
