Take a look at this. CaptionMax, a subtitle and video description company, is inviting writers to describe a short movie clip. The best entry wins $2,000 (or $1,000 for second, $500 for third). That’s a lot of money for describing 90 seconds of video!
And it’s for a good cause. Description, as it’s called in the industry, helps people with vision loss enjoy movies and TV programs. Writers translate visual information into words, inserting description of the scene into the pauses between spoken words in the original soundtrack.
CaptionMax is looking to promote the next generation of Description writers. Is it one of your writers?
Help me spread the word in any one of these ways:
1. Invite the writers that you know to participate. Details are found at VideoDescriptionContest.com
2. Post the news on FB or tweet all this goodness.
3. Place a banner on your site or page using the contest graphics (I can send these to you).
Let’s get some writers paid for doing good work.
Submissions due http://videodescriptioncontest.com by April 30, 2014
If you have any questions, I’d be happy to get you answers. Cheers!
