What is the Ten Second Films competition?
The Ten Second Films Competition requires users to submit digital videos ten seconds long.
In our inaugural competition, we were thrilled by the quality and quantity of submissions that came in: 1,000 films were submitted, and about 200 made the first cut and were published on the site. These published films were then rated by visitors to the site, and the top 20 user-rated films became Finalists. The Finalists were reviewed by our panel of judges, and the three winning films were announced on March 27. We thank everyone who submitted and rated so many wonderful films, and we'll be announcing the next competition soon.
