Submit a short video showing how your daily habits make you a Young Media Star and earn bonus points that could give you the winning edge
If you’re serious about winning our Yahoo! Young Media Stars Competition, going to Cannes Lions, and gaining all the other benefits of this once in a lifetime experience, it’s time to unleash your inner Spielberg. Just make a video no more than 90 seconds long that shows why the things that you do each day make you a Young Media Star and enter it along with your application. (Applications and videos are due by April 30.) You could earn up to 10 bonus points, and in a tough competition like this, that could make the difference between going to Cannes and staying home.
Don’t pass up this chance to show off your creativity and really impress the judges. It sure paid off for our 2012 winners, Marisa Wong and Mike Murphy. A year later, people still recognize them from their awesome video entries! For inspiration, check out all the videos made for last year’s competition.
On May 1, all videos will be posted to the Yahoo! Advertising Facebook Page on a special tab dedicated to Yahoo! Young Media Stars 2013. Encourage your colleagues, friends, and family members to vote for your video from May 1 to May 10. We’ll award 5 bonus points to the video that best demonstrates originality and creativity, and 5 bonus points to the video that receives the highest number of votes on our Facebook page.
If you make a video, upload it to Flickr. If you haven’t yet submitted your Young Media Stars application, simply include the link to the video within your application. If you’ve already submitted your application, email the link to your video to email@example.com. Complete information on how to enter the competition and submit your video is available here. Good luck, and lights, camera, action!
