Everything you need to know about  competing in AudPop video contests and film competitions

"

AudPop offers filmmakers and video creatives opportunities to work with brands and small businesses. As an AudPop video creative, you can submit films and videos to video contests and film challenges. Or apply to work for a small business to create the video that they need. 

We give filmmakers and video creatives an opportunity to discover new audiences for their film careers, win money and prizes by creating new films for brands, and submit existing films to a variety of film challenges and video contests.

How to optimize competing in a film competition/video contest:

$

Follow and engage with all current film challenges. Remember: Users can vote once daily per film, on as many films as they choose.

$

Follow and engage with AudPop users to build your community and audience.

$

Your film has social share buttons you can use to share your film across your social media platforms.

$

Ensure your profile is complete and up-to-date with a current profile picture. Don’t forget to include a compelling cover image for your films to help them stand out.

$

Email verification is required for members to vote. (Pro tip: Let your friends and family know in advance!) This helps protect you and keeps the video contest more secure from hackers.

This is a community of filmmakers and film enthusiasts. Comments and interaction are encouraged! The filmmakers who have had the best experiences on this site are the ones who have engaged positively with their fellow competitors.

Your film library is not just for submissions for film challenges. If you have other films you would like to post to your profile, please do. In fact, it’s encouraged as it can help you gain more exposure for your filmmaking career. Many times, filmmakers add clips, trailers, and excerpts to continue to build support throughout the film challenges.
