How To Enter
The “This is My Camp” Contest is a pretty basic idea: Make a video that shows how much fun The Camp of Champions is. The video needs to start with our opening credits, then you facing the camera, saying your name, where you are from, how old you are and then you saying the phrase, “This is my camp." After that, use any of our footage you want (click here to download Camp of Champions footage)...it’s up to you. Finish your video with the closing credits.
Get creative! The video can’t be longer than two and a half minutes. We want to see what would make you stoked to go to The Camp of Champions. Please note that this contest is open EVERYONE, and that you don't have to have been a camper to enter. Also, there can’t be any foul language in the video or the music.
Once you're done, post your completed video onto a Vimeo profile as a .mov or .mp4 file and send us the link so we can download it, and when you upload your video, tag it: COC, Camp of Champs, Camp of Champions, Whistler, Summer Camp, Vitaminwater, Oakley, GoPro. We will then upload all of the videos to The Camp of Champions Vimeo account and will track the stats on it, and it's up to you to start hounding your friends to share it and like it. We have prizes for the most Facebook likes, the most plays, the most embeds, and all all kids of other stuff. Winners will be chosen on December 1st, and all entries will become the property of The Camp of Champions.
1 Grand Prize – Become the COC Film Intern and win “A Mountain of Vitamin Water”
The Grand Prize is an intern position at the Camp of Champions in the summer of 2012 as one of our film crew that chronicles everything that goes on at COC (Prize Value: $8,000). If you have skills with a camera and editing, this is the one to go for. It will launch your career, your goggle tan, or both. Members of our COC crew have gone on to work with what seems like every company and magazine in the industry. Win this one and you will start living the dream. The prize of “A mountain of Vitamin Water” is pretty self-explanatory: cases of Vitamin Water stacked up to your nose.
2 Grand Prizes – 8-Day Overnight Camp and “A Mountain of VitaminWater”
This prize consists of an 8-Day Overnight Camp of Champions Session (Prize Value: $2000 each). Because there can only be one intern, we created this Grand Prize so that even if you don’t win the intern position, you still win an awesome prize and get to get your shred on at COC next summer.
4 Grand Prizes – 8-Day “Park Access Only” Camp and “A Mountain of VitaminWater”
Four Grand Prizes of an 8-Day “Park Access Only” Camp (Prize Value: $695 each). Because we know making videos is fun, but also work, we created these prizes.
4 Grand Prizes – Get Outfitted By Oakley Head-To-Toe and “A Mountain of VitaminWater”
Prizing includes an Oakley jacket, snowpants, t-shirt, hoodie, goggles, sunglasses and beanie (Prize Value: $2500 each). This prize is amazing, and you’ll look like your sponsored if you win.
20 Prizes – Camp of Champions Backpack and Gloves
Prizing includes a Camp of Champions Backpack and Gloves (Prize Value: $250 each). These 20 prizes are for people who made great videos but unfortunately didn’t win the grand prizes. Because we want as many people as possible to win, we created this set of prizes for the “Man, my video isn’t as good as that guy's, but I still want to win something” videos.
Choosing The Winners
The winners will be chosen by The Camp of Champions staff using the same scoring model as the American/Canadian/Borneo Idol TV show. Part of the results will be based on your number of likes and plays on Facebook and Vimeo, and part of the results will be from us judging what videos we like the best.
Winners will be announced on December 1st.
