After the submission period, judges will have time to review and pick their favourites. The winners will be announced on July 19 via the Musicbed blog. After the judges have selected their winners, there will also be a crowd–sourced People’s Choice award for every category.
The Musicbed Challenge judges include Jim Cummings (Producer/Director of SXSW winner “Thunder Road”), Sam Kolder, Devin Graham (Devinsupertramp), Marlina Fletcher (MD, Stink Studios) and many more. The judges will mainly be looking for clear and focused storytelling utilizing the most out of the limited time frame of 30 days (well less than that now until July 9th), in addition to how well you can utilise the song(s) in your story.
These next-level creatives have been chosen specifically for their expertise in each category, represent some of the most talented minds working today.
Examples of prizes include a SwitchPod for every winner in each category (that’s a pretty rad monopod for all you vloggers out there), one Gnarbox 2.0 SSD (512GB), a GoPro Hero7, a year’s worth of membership to Skillshare, a SmallHD FOCUS monitor, $400 worth of credit at Wooden Camera and many more.
