Here are some FAQ:
Q: Can I send a video entry in any language?
A: We accept videos in English, videos in other languages that are subtitled in English, videos with no spoken words, or videos in which the spoken text is not essential to understanding the action.
Q: I'd like to use animation to create a video entry, or maybe video record a theater performance. Is that OK?
A: You may create your video entry in any format you wish. Examples include: cinema-type videos; all imaginable kinds of animation (hand-drawn, puppetry, computer-generated, Lego, clay modeling, etc.); filmed theater performances; musicals .... Please be as creative and innovative as you would like.
Q: I don't have any video training at all, and I only have really basic equipment. Can I still participate?
A: Absolutely! You might have noticed that many of the most popular videos on YouTube were created by complete amateurs using basic equipment -- often nothing but a mobile phone. So, don't be intimidated. Just go for it!
Q: Can I submit more than one video entry?
A: Yes! You can send as many entries as you wish, and you can send in entries for as many different Video Challenges as you wish.
