We are proud to announce the return of Firefox Flicks, Mozilla’s global video competition that invites Firefox fans and filmmakers to create short videos, or “Flicks,” that help tell the Firefox story. Last year was a huge success and we received more than 400 videos submission from thousands of filmmakers all over the world.
In 2013, the theme of Firefox Flicks is “Get Mobilized.” Its about enabling more people to take advantage of the full power of the Web and giving them better access to easily discover, enjoy and share content that can change their lives. Through Firefox Flicks we are creating energy for our upcoming mobile OS that will deliver on this promise. Everything you need to know about creating a Flick for the contest can be found in the filmmaker’s creative brief.
We want to rally the entire Mozilla community, users, fans, creators, filmmakers and animators everywhere. Starting February 13, filmmakers will submit a Flick that is 60 seconds or less that will be used in online and broadcast media campaigns.
Prizes for winners include:
- Regional Winners — One winner from each contest region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia) will win a $5,000 cash prize and one runner up from each contest region will win a $2,500 cash prize.
- People’s Choice Award — People will be able to vote for their favorite Flick during the People’s Choice Award voting period August 1 – August 31. The three winning Flicks will receive a Firefox Flicks swag bag.
We’ll be sharing more details over the coming months, including Hollywood judges, additional prizes, events and more. You can visit www.firefoxflicks.org for more details. Check out last year’s winners for some inspiration:
