Creating a successful submission

For great visuals:

  • Shoot videos and selfies horizontally, not vertically. (Turn your phone sideways)
  • Hold the camera as still as possible or put it on a tripod or other fixed location.
  • Keep the camera at eye level and look directly into the camera lens.
  • Film in natural light if possible. If inside, film near a window with the light in front of you, not behind.
  • Do not alter images or video with filters, color correction, text, emojis, etc. We’ll handle that in final editing! Send the original files.

Below are two examples taken outside with correct lighting.
