Sony has today announced a new competition to 'celebrate the creativity and spirit of content creators everywhere', with one winner set to claim a brand new PXW-FS5 camera for their work.
Unveiled at IBC 2015, the compact new PXW-FS5 provides on-the-go shooting with stunning 4K image quality, even in demanding conditions. The camera weighs only 0.8kg, with an ergonomic weight balance to ensure comfortable and reliable handheld shooting. The PXW-FS5's adaptable design allows multiple shooting angles, modification, and even mounting on a drone.
Now, filmmakers of all abilities can have the opportunity to win a PXW-FS5 for themselves. In a global competition, entrants are invited to submit a two-minute film under the theme of “No More Limits”, which will be scored on creativity and uniqueness as well as the difficulty level of the shots captured.
Eligible submissions should be uploaded to YouTube and entered on the Sony Professional website by 31st October, 2015.
The videos which receive the most YouTube ‘likes’ from the 1st-15th November will form regional shortlists, with Sony Independent Certified Experts selecting their favourites as part of an exclusive webinar in early December. These regional finalists will each win a Sony a7s, and will be entered into the global final to win the PXW-FS5. The grand winner will also be announced during the webinar.
