  • “Lego Hero Factory: Next Saga” Video Project – $100,000 Prize Pool
    Posted June 28th, 2013 at 12:00 am

    Tongal has had some creative encounters with the Lego brand in the past, but this time it results in one of the largest prize pools both companies have ever had. Think of this project as a sequel to its first Lego Hero Factory project. The story behind this project is that Akiyama Makuro and the Lego Hero Factory are up against a ruthless army of evil brains that act as a parasite, inhabiting the bodies of innocent animals and turning them into powerful destructive villains. They can defeat the host bodies, but the brains simply move over to another body. What’s a Lego Hero to do?

    This is your chance to create an exciting idea, pitch and/or video for a computer animated (or stop-motion) Lego video. Because Tongal projects typically work in phases, you can choose to participate (and win) in one or all 3. For the first phase, the idea needs to be 140 characters and should fall in line with the Lego brand while continuing the Hero Factory story whose tone and sensibility appeals to older boys ages 9-14. Also keeping in mind some of the key marketing messages (tone, setting, toy elements) will give you the best chance at winning this round. Six winning ideas will earn $1,000 plus a 5% one-time residual of any winning video that their idea inspired.

    For the pitch phase, you will need to provide 500 characters or less of description along with storyboards and video to support your method for producing an animated Lego video. The six most compelling pitches will move on to the video phase and will receive $2,500 to help produce the videos. Check out Erik Beck’s pitch HERE to get an idea of a successful one.

    Once in the final phase, the six finalists will produce videos based on their winning pitch. They are guaranteed a cash prize at this point since there 7 awarded (1st place $30,000, 2nd place $15,000, 3rd place $9,000, 4th place $8,000, 5th place $7,000, 6th place $6,000, 7th place $4,000). The big question mark is where they’ll place. It’s also at this phase that all other creators are invited to participate since a 7th spot is reserved for a wild card selection. You don’t need to use any of the winning ideas from the previous phases either. It’s basically just like entering a traditional video contest where you execute the video you want and see if it wins. Be sure to read all the detailed rules on the contest page below. We can’t wait to see what is in store for Lego’s Hero Factory!


    13+, June 10th 2013

    13+, 60-90 seconds (plus 15 + 30 second trailers), Deadline: August 1st 2013


  • 2013 Green-Go Film Contest – $450
    Posted June 27th, 2013 at 9:30 am

    The call for entries in the “Green-Go Short Film Contest” has opened and looking for original, creative and strong messaged videos that focus on the subject of clean water. Can you change the world with one film? You can certainly open eyes with it. There are three categories to choose from:

    • Life in plastic, it’s fantastic? – The waste we produce every day covers bigger and bigger areas of land and water in places where flora and fauna once flourished.

    • Water – the drop of life – Abrihet, his wife and their three children live in the Danakil region of Ethiopia, Africa. Over 50oC is nothing unusual here and the place is among the driest in the world. There is no water to be found for hundreds of miles around and the family’s survival depends on that small amount of water brought in a truck every week. This is used for drinking, cooking and washing.

    • Stayin’ alive – An old blue whale is swimming somewhere in the ocean. It could still recall the time when they were not harmed by whaling and human greed. While you are reading this call, the life of this whale is in danger. Just like the life of the Hirola antelope in the savannahs of Kenya, who probably at this moment is looking into the barrels of a poacher’s gun.

    Films can be in any genre (animation, documentary, interviews, etc) and be either a campaign or a short film. A winner from each category will be selected and win a cash prize of 350 Euros ($455). The entry that receives the most public votes will earn 200 Euros ($260). Visit the contest page below for all the details. Good luck!

    All Ages, Campaigns 60 seconds, Short Films 1-4 minutes, Deadline: September 30th 2013


  • Gain “Laundry Rules” Video Project – $18,000
    Posted June 26th, 2013 at 9:53 am

    While laundry is an important aspect of everyone’s daily life, it’s often overlooked. These days, men are doing just as much laundry as women and there are a lot of unspoken rules that go along with the process. The folks over at Gain have partnered with Tongal in hopes of finding unique and entertaining videos that will educate the public about these rules while showcasing the product’s “Lift & Lock” technology.

    Create a 30-60 second video that highlights the technology through a guys’ entertaining and humorous  “Laundry Rules.” Some examples of the laundry rules may be:

    • Not sure if you should wash your baseball stuff with your wife’s clothes? Follow this rule: Yes.
    • A funky wardrobe is cool. A funky-smelling wardrobe is not.
    • Barbecue is wonderful. Smelling like barbecue? Not so wonderful.
    • Whether you’re wearing stripes or solids, nothing matches with stinky.
    • If the smell of your gym shirt is stronger than you are, it’s time to wash it.

    The goal of your entry will be to speak to women 18-49 from a man’s perspective. The hero is a “guys’ guy”: resourceful, confident, charming, and funny. He is not cheesy, arrogant, sophomoric or macho. Be sure to note that since this is a video “project” in its final phase, the first 2 phases have come and gone. This means that you will be submitting to phase 3 “video” as a wild card entry (similar to traditional video contest odds) and you can utilize the concepts from the first phase to produce your video.

    There is a $45,000 prize pool for the video phase which includes an $18,000 grand prize! $12,000 goes to 2nd place while 3rd, 4th and 5th receive $6,000, $4,000 and $3,000 respectively. Even 6th place takes home a check for $2,000. Again, only the 5 winning participants from phase 2 will be locked into winning these prizes, but 1 wild card entry will come in and possibly grab the grand prize. Will that be you?


    13+, 30-60 seconds, Deadline: July 15th 2013


  • ProjectED “Concrete Nouns” Video Contest – $1,000
    Posted June 25th, 2013 at 12:00 am

    ProjectED is back with another awesome (yet educational) video contest. This time around, the team is asking you to create a music video that showcases the difference between abstract and concrete nouns. Concrete nouns are people, places and things that you can physically see and touch. Abstract nouns on the other hand, are emotional ideas that are intangible. Here are some examples: energy, ability, faith, luck, trust, curiosity and education. The best part of all? The song has already been written and recorded by YouTube star Jonathan Mann!


    Fire up your video cameras and put some images to the lyrics. Of course your entry can in any style so if animation is your thing, have at it. Just be creative! There will be two grand prize winners (ages 13+ and 18+) who will receive a $1,000 prize. A lucky finalist will also earn $250 for his or her video. Head over to the contest page for all the details and get filming today!
