2012 04 01 American Photographic Artists: Members Short Video Contest

The Competition


The American Photographic Artists present:

The 1st Annual APA Members Short Video Contest !

Over $15,000 in cash and prizes !
This is a FREE contest, but only current APA members can enter.

APA National feels it's time to show the world that we, the members of American Photographic Artists, are more than just "still" photographers and that there is a wealth of "motion" talent and creativity in our ranks.

What better way to accomplish this (and promote our organization ;-) than to have a members only video contest, and then build an APA promotional video (We are the American Photographic Artists) from the winners...?

15 categories to showcase your talent.
Over $15k in cash and great gear up for grabs!!!

Early entry : February 26th, 2012...final deadline of Sunday, April 1, 2012 at 5pm PST. Winners will be announced at the NAB Show (National Association of Broadcasters) on April 16th.

Pretty cool, eh?

Full details are available at APA National.com
