Outdoor Animal Video Contest

Outdoor Animal Video Contest

It’s back! Several years ago we held a video contest, inviting you to send us your best bird videos. We still love those videos, so we’ve decided it’s time to hold a new contest. It’s bigger and better than ever, with a $1,000 grand prize, and we’re holding it in partnership with our companion magazine Country.

So now those outdoor pet and farm animal videos are fair game, too! Maybe the critter in your backyard will be our next online star! Ready to enter?

Step 1: Create a video (camera, smartphone, etc.) 60 seconds or less. We are looking for funny, cute and heart-warming videos of birds, squirrels and other backyard critters. We’ll even accept entries of wildlife and farm animals.

Step 2: Upload your video through the contest tab on our Facebook page. Remember, it needs to be 60 seconds or less. Also, the maximum file size is 5GB.

Step 3: Sit back and wait! The judging will be held at the end of August. Then finalists will be announced in early September, and we’ll be asking the public to vote, too.

Contest begins on July 15, 2014 and ends on August 29, 2014. For more details on the contest or specific video requirements, read our official rules.
