America's Cup Video Production Competition: show off!

Make it splashy, make it loud!

Make the action jump off the television screen and drag the viewer into the next exciting installment of America’s Cup history.

The America’s Cup Video Competition invites all persons less than 28 years of age to submit a unique video clip demonstrating creative production techniques.

The competition winner, as chosen by a panel of extreme sports and social media leaders, will get to choose from prizes that include a top of the range Apple MacBook Pro, installed with the latest video editing software, to a high-end, HD video camera.

Other finalists will receive BMW ORACLE Racing official team gear.

Entries submitted prior to July 16, 2010 will be considered for the “early entry” prizes of attendance at the 34th America’s Cup on-water video production trials in Valencia, Spain which are scheduled for July 22-25, 2010.

The competition runs from June 28, 2010 to September 28, 2010.

Competition winners will be notified no later than October 15, 2010.

The clip can be of any length and should illustrate video production techniques that could help widen the audience of the 34th America’s Cup and boost interest in the event, particularly for younger audiences.

Clips may be of any sport or activity and can be any combination of camerawork, editing and production. Clips must be original and 100-percent rights-cleared.
