Posted on 6:04 am in March 2013, Open To All, Over $1000 by Lynnie

Volicon launched a contest in which the best original video featuring the spoken phrase “Volicon It” will win the creator a prize of $2,500, with the next-best entries earning prizes of $1,000, $500, and $250. The winning videos will be featured on the Volicon website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel. Video entries may fit any genre but must be under two minutes in length. The new deadline for submission is March 31.


All entries are due by 5 p.m. (EST) on March 25, and must be sent via the Volicon YouSendIt(R) dropbox as well as submitted via the entry/registration form on the company’s website. Both of these steps are essential to completing the entry. The video must be in either .wmv, .avi, .mov, .mp4, or .mpg file format and must not exceed 500 MB in total size. Once the video has been submitted and approved for viewing, Volicon will upload the video to Video Content in its YouTube channel.
Videos must have a maximum length of two (2) minutes or less.
There is no entry fee, but submissions are limited to a maximum of two videos per person or team.


Anyone can enter The “Volicon It” video contest. There are no age restrictions and entry is open to amateurs and professionals alike.

Judging Criteria

Contest judges are individuals with a love of film and experience in the broadcast, network, cable, and IPTV industries. They will judge entries on creativity, technical merit, adherence to contest criteria, and “How well they manage to work the whole ‘Volicon It’ thing into the video.” These are clearly subjective categories and will be treated as such.


1st – $2,500
2nd – $1,000
3rd – $500
4th – $250
