Going Mobile Firefox Flicks Contest

It is a small world after all, a mobile small world. As we transition from a PC connected web to a mobile web connection there are companies that are looking at the emerging markets, Africa, China and South America mobile users have jumped into the mix.

Linux is coming out with a phone OS that can be connected to a monitor for a full web connection. We know that people are pledging their allegiance to the iOS. Not to mention a little group called Google.

Firefox Flicks Contest Information Page

Now Firefox want to bring awareness about the Firefox OS. To that end, there is a contest where they would like folks to come up with videos to promote the interconnected world.

This is what Firefox wants:

  1. A 60 second or less video talking about inspiring people to understand the power of mobile, mobile computing and how that allows folks to collaborate and prosper. (My take on this, not actually expressed in the creative brief; which you should read if you gonna enter the contest.)
  2. This is an international contest unless there is a U.S. boycott or some action happening in your country; sorry about that for those folks in Cuba, Iran, North Korea. That being said, the video needs to be in the English language or there needs to be subtitles/captions.
  3. Be creative but leave the dystrophic world view out of the mix. In other words, be encouraging, optimistic and engaging.
  4. Creatively speaking, have at it; record on your phone, camcorder, animation tool or screencast (but be mindful of copyright issues)
You could do this out of the goodness of your heart but you don't have to; there is cash money and prizes for the winning videos.

The contest starts on February 13, 2013, and ends at 11:59 p.m. PST on Wednesday, July 31, 2013.

Even if you don't want to enter the contest think about the skills necessary to put a short video together. You really do have everything you need and the rest is just logistics.
