We accept avi, mpg, mov, wmv, mp4 and m4v extensions. Neither height nor width can be odd numerically (eg dimensions of 1023 x 768 should not be used because 1023 is an odd number). Do not export any black borders and we prefer 16:9 aspect ratio but will accept other ratios. The video frame rate (fps) is not important but bear in mind the intended use – if the brand intends to display on TV then they will prefer 30fps.
Due May 28, 2012


Over the age of 16 at the date of entry. (All Users of the age 16 to 18 must have permission of an adult who will receive any prizes or remuneration on their behalf)

Judging Criteria

The judges will review all approved videos and will use their own pre-arranged system to rate the videos according to how well they meet the brief, their originality and how well the message is communicated. There may also be additional criteria.

Judging will be fair and all approved videos will be considered.

For Ad competitions video submissions that do not meet the brief entirely but which show creative thinking, good production values and which impress the judges will be accepted.


The winning filmmaker (and a friend) will join MOFILM and their fellow winners in the south of France, where we have an exciting 3 days lined up including our legendary awards on the beach!
