HERE ARE SEVEN VIDEO contests that want your videos. Winners are promised fame and fortune. Even runners up get serious air-time.
1. X Prize Foundation’s Exploration Video Contest
One of the coolest contests was, of course, created by one of the most exploration-oriented groups in the world, the X Prize Foundation. These guys are looking for videos that illustrate the importance of exploration on both the personal and species-wide levels.
““Exploration of space, our Earth and its oceans has shaped the way we live on this planet today, and your exploration will help shape the world of tomorrow. As fellow explorers, we want to know why you do it. What is the meaning and impact of your exploration? Why do you explore?”
Not only does the contest itself revolve around physical and philosophical exploration, but the grand prize ensures that you’ll be traveling again, this time to such exotic locals as Antarctica or any of the 40 other National Geographic Expeditions.
Deadline: April 10th, 2012
