Tips & inspiration

Canon photographer, @cam_snaps, shares his top tips on how to get started with your video entry.

  • Plan tile

    Plan your video

    Keep your video tight and engaging. Make sure you can showcase your idea efficiently, so that the judges will understand you idea straight away.

  • Create tile

    Push the creative boundaries

    Sounds a bit cliche, but really try and think outside the box. If you want your entry to stand out in a sea of other videos, then you want to think of a really unique idea that’s gonna capture people’s attention.

  • Experience tile

    Use sound

    Utilise sound to enhance your video. Whether it’s through SFX, or adding the right music to your video. Sound design is such an important of way of making your videos pop, not just pretty visuals.
