Rio de Janiro 2013: Shell Video Contest – $8,000


Shell will be celebrating its centenary in Brazil this year and is inviting you to take part. After 100 years in Brazil, their history is full of milestone achievements and transformations. Shell wanted something special and as a way to prevent the centennial celebration from feeling too corporate in listing these achievements and milestones, they are instead turning to the filmmaking to community to build the story.

Create a short film that brings to life the human and emotional journey that Shell and the people of Brazil have taken together over the past 100 years while hinting at their growth for the next 100. Choose a character whose voice will illustrate the unsung hero moments that Shell has been a part of. The stories should be warm and genuine. Since you are commenting on milestones, your story can be told in real time, in history or even in the future looking back. The company has provided a list of milestones to choose from on their contest brief which you can access through the link below. Ultimately they want an emotional film that firmly roots Shell as an integral part of Brazilian society and life.

Some serious cash prizes are going to be awarded to the top film submissions as well. The grand prize winner will receiveĀ $8,000 plus round trip travel for two people to Rio de Janiro for 5 nights. 2nd and 3rd place receive $4,000 and $2,000 respectively, while 4th and 5th take home $1,000 each. We look forward to seeing the entries. Good luck!

16+, 60 seconds, Deadline: August 18th 2013
