Nikon USA video contest, $100,000 top prize...
Nov 15, 2009

From Michigan (the "new" Hollywood) comes the biggest DSLR film competition ever...

http://www.nikonfestival.com/

$100,000 Judges Award
$25,000 Audience Award

Theme: "A Day Through Your Lens".
Time limit: 140 seconds
Open to: legal US residents 18 and older

Equipment: "The video portion of the Submission may be taken with any type or brand of camera"

(Note: the way the rules are worded, it might even include include old fashioned "video cameras", I'm not sure).

Judges:

  • Rainn Wilson - director ("Peep World", "Hesher"), actor ("The Office", "Six Feet Under"), voice talent, and writer.

  • Justine Ezarik - internet personality (yes, I wonder about that one, myself)

  • Chase Jarvis - advertising photographer (Red Bull, Pepsi, Nike, Reebok) and director

(disclaimer: I have no financial connection with Nikon or any of the entities associated with this contest and listed in the terms and conditions. I was simply born and raised in Michigan and thought "bloody cool, let's get the word out")
