Step One: Know The Rules
Like any contest with stakes this high, we have some rules you'll need to follow.
- No Eminem, No Post Malone, and Absolutely No Lady Gaga: You cannot use music in your video if you do not have written permission from the musician. Many websites or programs offer "license-free" music which you can use, however!
- No Paparazzi, Please: It's important that anyone who you show in your video submission is aware & willing to be in your contest entry.
- Get ready to be #Famous: If we like your submission, there's a good chance we will feature you on our website, social media accounts, TV commercials or any other form of media. Don't worry; we'll tag you on Instagram whenever we can.
- Keep It Clean: We may share your video with thousands of people who know & love Peek'n Peak Resort. Your video should not contain profanity, nudity, or anything remotely like that.
- Ask Your 'Rents: You must be 18 years or older. If you're under 18, you'll need a parent or guardian's permission to participate.
- Pros Need Not Apply: This is an amateur video contest for fans of Peek'n Peak Resort. If you're a professional photographer or videographer, this contest is not for you.
- Stay Grounded: Drones are not permitted at Peek'n Peak Resort without prior authorization - which is not granted to amateurs or hobbyist. Submissions with drone footage will be disqualified.
Step Two: Create Your Video
It's your chance to show us how you Celebrate Winter at The Peak and put a spotlight on your creativity. There's no limit to what you can create (as long as you follow the rules above), but here are some general suggestions. Submissions must be received by 3/1/2019.
- Keep It Short & Sweet: We're looking for videos that are under two minutes in length.
- Make It Your Own: We want to see how YOU experience The Peak. Your video doesn't have to be full of gnarly terrain compilations to win. If you prefer sipping hot cocoa by the Main Lodge fireplace, that's perfectly fine to show instead.
- Bonus Points: We'll give extra attention to videos that showcase originality, creativity, audience appeal, humor, and quality.
Step Three: Submit Your Entry
It's crucial that you complete each of the following steps to submit your entry. If not, we'll need to disqualify your entry - and we don't like doing that. Submissions must be received by 3/1/2019.
