Small Business Stories Video Contest
Every small business has a story. This contest will reward the best telling of those stories.
Submissions for this competition are documentary-style shorts of actual small businesses from your town. What drove them? What are their biggest successes? Greatest challenges? Why did they start? Why did they continue when the odds were stacked against them? What keeps them moving forward? What makes them smile? Don’t worry about lighting. Don’t focus on “polish.” These are the stories of the people who are grinding it out every day. It’s about their trials and tribulations and their successes. Maybe their story is told through a voiceover. Maybe it’s told through a Q&A interview. This contest isn’t about technical polish. This contest isn’t about getting the perfect shot. Your job isn’t to make the story look “pretty,” because sometimes it’s not.
Entries must between 1 and 2 minutes.
1st Place: $10,000
2nd Place: $3,000
3rd Place: $1,500
7 Honourable Mention Awards: $1,000 Each
Due February 13th, 2017
