As part of our ongoing contest series, on March 25, we teamed up with vertical video pro Ani Acopian to launch a contest that challenged your vertical video making - #FlatLayChallenge.
Ani has been busy reviewing your content! We received over 190 eligible submissions which showcased an incredible amount of creativity, planning and execution. We’ve seen epic portraits of the things you love – from superstar pets to snacks, sports, sky-dives and of course a whole heap of gear.
We’re excited to announce that Ani has selected a Grand Prize winner and two Runners Up. The winners will receive filmmaking gear from a prize pool worth over $10,000. Watch the winning films below!
Congratulations to all three of the prize winners, and THANK YOU to everyone who took the time and energy to create and share something awesome with the community. We hope the challenge was fun and that working on it got you to try something new as a creator.
We’ll be announcing the next challenge on May 6th – so subscribe to YouTube to be the first in the know.
*Prizes comprised of display units (except for Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4k and DJI Mavic 2 Pro). Display units may be subject to unpackaging, display for promotional purposes, and repackaging (but not operation) prior to prize allocation and fulfilment.
