To celebrate the ever-improving imaging quality of its handheld products, technology giant DJI and its social platform SkyPixel have announced the 2021 SkyPixel Creative Video Contest with prizes totaling $46,000.
The competition is open for videos shot with DJI Osmo or Ronin Series products, namely, DJI Action 2, OM 5, Pocket 2, OM 4, Osmo Mobile 3, Osmo Action, Osmo Pocket, Ronin S, Ronin SC, RS 2, RSC 2, and Ronin 2. The use of drone videos is also allowed in moderation, but to qualify, footage taken using DJI’s Osmo or Ronin equipment should account for at least 50% of the total duration of the work.
The contest, running from October 27 to December 6, 2021, is welcoming submissions from all types of creators – from hobbyists to professional videographers. You can send in entries from any part of the globe. There is no age limit. And you may also submit as many pieces of work as you wish.
There are seven categories to choose from: Sports, Travel, Party, Pets and Kids, Creative, Foods, and the brand-new 15-second Video category.
