Nikon Shooters: Get Cash and Exposure for Your Short Films
Submit your films to Nikon’s new In Every Frame platform for a chance to get featured.
Nikon has been pretty busy celebrating its 100th anniversary this past year, from launching a commemorative site with films and stories from Nikon enthusiasts, to launching its D850 full-frame DSLR. Now, the company wants to celebrate you—its video-shooting customers—with the In Every Frame platform.
Dubbed “the first exclusive video-sharing platform for Nikon filmmakers,” the site encourages filmmakers to submit work shot with Nikon cameras and lenses for the chance to win $2000 and get featured on the company's showcase. Up to four videos will be selected each month, and the best part? You can submit as many videos as you want!
According to the site, entries will be judged based on the following criteria:
- Originality: 25%
- Story-telling and creativity: 25%
- Cinematography: 25%
- Inspires or motivates viewers: 25%
If you’re just getting started, there are videography quick tips and tutorials on offer like How to Get the Right Focus: Autofocus, Rack Focus, and Manual Focus Techniques.
