YOLO or 'You Only Live Once!' - Yahoo's latest 2min Video Contest
Two minutes to tell a story on film. And a top prize of S$15,000 cash.
This is Yahoo Singapore’s inaugural made-for-web video competition. Called Yahoo Fast Flicks, all you need to do is make a video with the theme - YOLO. Any style, any genre!
YOLO, in non-millenial speak, is You Only Live Once.
Submissions will be accepted from October 7-21, and the best 30 entries will be handpicked and showcased across the Yahoo Singapore network and social media.
The final top 10 entries and their teams will be invited to the grand finale on November 14, when they will battle it out for the top spot by making a final pitch to our esteemed judging panel: award-winning filmmaker and chief executive officer of Zhao Wei Films and Gorylah Pictures Eric Khoo, Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) director Zhang Wenjie, and CEO of Infinite Studios and SGIFF Chairman Mike Wiluan.
