CONTEST // CONNECT THE DOTS 2013
For the fourth year in a row, KING SHIT and CONVERSE present Canada's largest video contest, CONNECT THE DOTS. $10,000 in cash prizes are up for grabs again this year and all you have to do is send us a 5 minute video and 10 photos. Not exactly rocket science.
There are only THREE rules:
1) Everything has to be shot in a specific time frame (July 2nd to Aug 2nd)
2) Teams of no more than 10 people (including filmer and photographer) and at least one of you needs to be a Canadian resident.
3) Entries are limited to 5 minutes of video and 10 photos (can be less, but no more)
Teams will get their entry packages on July 2nd and then have the ENTIRE MONTH OF JULY to shoot, film, and edit their entry and get it to us no later than 5pm EST on Thursday August 2nd, 2012.
Then, King Shit staff will sit down with some CONS pros, have a few "judgment enhancers", check out all the entires, and narrow it down to a Top 10. Then we'll pick a winner for each category.
1) BEST OVERALL - $5,000
2) BEST SKATEBOARDING - $2,500
3) MOST CREATIVE - $2,500
Now, you can submit whatever the hell kind of video/photo combination you want—something absolutely bizzare, something with a narrative, or just straight up skateboarding— we don't give a crap, just make it interesting and creative. Cause interesting and creative is what will win you money. But we can't stress enough: the contest is judged on the best combination of both photos AND video—just a bangin' video won't win you any money. How you combine the two is entirely up to you, but you better have good photos to go with your video.
The Top 10 videos will be featured here on the King Shit site and at premieres across the country in November. The three winning entries photos will also get featured in the November issue of the mag. That's it. You've got three months to get your shit together and come up with an awesome idea, and a whole month to get it done. There's no excuses here, people. So email us your entry, If you've got any questions, hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
