Video Contests and Getting Started

A couple weeks ago on No Film School there was a post talking about starting a career in film by entering video contests.  It was very informative and I liked it, so much that I decided I need to get in on the action as well. So after just a quick online search I found a couple of websites that deal with contests. Most of the sites are contests for commercials, but the payoffs involved are pretty dang good.  The prizes usually involve a one lump sum of cash but some may also offer certain merchandise or gear.

If one wants to get involved it is pretty easy, you just have to register at a sponsor site for contests.  These are really easy to find but a couple of the more popular ones are Poptent and Zoopa. You can’t go wrong with these sites here.  After rigistering and creating your profile you will then be able to accept assignments and upload projects. I registered on both and sent out this tweet:

Which I was then responded to by Poptent:
