The Sync Competition – Your tracks, their videos – submit, compete and win
The Sync Summit Paris Sync Competition is for registered attendees of Sync Summit Paris (to register, go here) designed to give artists, composers and rights holders of all types to sync their original compositions or tracks to videos provided by the Sync Competition Jury, who will then select the winners from all entries, with the winners presented and discussed at Sync Summit Paris on 14 April.
Here’s the rundown:
Q. What is the Sync Competition and who can enter?
A. The Sync Competition allows registered Sync Summit Paris attendees to download videos that are submitted by top music supervisors and visual media execs in advertising, TV, film and video games, sync an original composition and/or an existing track to the video, upload it for evaluation by the Sync Summit Jury (more in them below), with the top videos chosen highlighted and recognized during a ceremony at Sync Summit Paris on 14 April.
The Sync Competition is open to all registered attendees and showcase bands participating in Sync Summit Paris. To register, just go here
Once you’ve registered, you’ll receive a password for the download/upload areas to enter the contest
Q. Who’s Judging this contest?
A. The Jury is composed of prominent music supervisors and executives across the European and American visual media industries: advertising, film, television and video games.
The Jury Members are:
Mary Ramos – Music Supervisor, Django Unchained, Kill Bill Volumes One & Two, Inglorious Bastards
Christoph Becker – Managing Director, Constantin Music GmbH, Constantin Music Publishing GmbH and Koenigskinder Music GmbH
Marcy Bulkeley – Music Director, Wild Card AV
Robert Kraft – Founder, Kraftbox Entertainment
Sergio Pimentel – Licensing Director, Big Sync Music
Q. So what’s my reward for doing this?
A. While there’s absolutely no guarantee that you’ll get a sync if you win, if you submit, and your submission is good, you’re on the radar of the top people in the sync business. And if you’re a winner, you’ll get the accolades and attention of the entire sync business and people will know you’re a go to person, composer or company.
And we’ll give you a free ticket and five minutes in front of the audience of the next Summit to intro your winning video.
It is an amazing way to get noticed by some of the top people in the industry.
Q. So how do I get Started?
A. Just follow these simple steps:
1. Register for the Sync Summit, then email firstname.lastname@example.org for your password
2. You will be provided a password and link to follow. From there just follow the steps to download and upload videos.
3. Download the videos and pay attention to the brief.
4. Upload the videos to the secure upload link that you’ll be provided.
That’s it – we’ll announce the top two for each video category the week before the event, and then present the winners at the end of day April 14th in Paris.
