Just a few days before WPPI, Photodex and SCU announced a terrific little contest, the Search for the Ultimate Self-Promotional Video. This week, because there are still so many artists who have asked about the contest and claim to be working on their video, we decided to extend the deadline to the end of the month.
Here's the point to the contest and what I especially love about it...
A self-promotional piece is your chance to show your heart, your skill set and share your passion with your target audience. It's an opportunity for you to show your work with still images and your personality on video. We've got three terrific judges involved in the contest and two companies, Photodex and SCU who absolutely believe in all of your abilities. But, it doesn't stop there, check out the companies responsible for the components of the grand prize.
Check out this short self-promotional video from Kristen Jensen. It took her less than two minutes to tell her story. Pay attention to the way Kristen tells you about Kristen Jensen Photography, the images she's shared, the camera angles, even the music. She's taken the best of everything about working with her and incorporated it into her message.
How are you going to tell your story?
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
