FAI Fest Spotlight: FireDrums Video Tutorial Contest

The FireDrums XIII Video Tutorial Contest has opened up submissions for the Video Tutorial Contest! They are taking submissions until March 15. The prizes are pretty huge as you will have the chance to win one of 3 ticket and travel stipend combos to FireDrums. You don’t have to enter this contest if you want to teach at FireDrums (but it might help pay your way 😉 ). Winners will be required to teach 3 classes at the fest.

Some Basic Rules

    • Only one entry per participant allowed.
    • All video entries must be between 1.5 and 4 minutes MAX. Exceeding the time limit will be an automatic disqualification. You are only allowed a 5 second “upload buffer.”
    • All entries must be new.  No recycling old videos.
    • The title of the video on YouTube must be “(your tutorial’s title): FireDrums XIII”
      • Be descriptive and include the prop in your title.

        • If you are restricted to a mobile device and are having trouble, email workshops@firedrums.org and we will email it to you. If you are still having trouble, contact us and we’ll have an alternative for you.
      • Entrants must submit a minimum of 3 workshop proposals for FireDrums XIII in conjunction with their video submission.  (Proposals factor into judging.  See “Judging” below.)
