Why get involved?

This is a great opportunity to show your passion for video and media skills and your enjoyment of HPV. You don’t need the world’s best camera gear to do a great video. Using a phone and an app can produce some great results.

Schools could also enhance their media studies with pedal prix. Remember you can share and post during the day while the race is on #pedalprix2018 or #ahpvss. Up to 3 entries per person or school allowed. This isn’t a photo competition; its a video story telling competition.

Want some inspiration? We found this cool Real Street Skateboarding competition for edits, angles and video!

Remember we reserve the right to not publish or award inappropriate videos or videos not to the values of the pedal prix community so keep it positive, keep it clean as there are children involved.

What we’re looking for?

Show us some diversity in the editing, titles, audio and video…tell us a pedal prix story up to 4 minutes long.

Remember judging is subjective and also an artform.

As a judge we want to see something interesting, motivating or exciting that tells a story. We’re also looking for good filming, good editing and a good song (remember copyright issues). Include some cool names or graphics as part of the edit. Quick intro, great outro, style of the shooting and audio with the graphics, diversity in whole footage…its the overall package that takes us on a journey!

Judges won’t necessarily pick the same as the Fan Fav. Judges will be more critical of all elements of the video package so its a full, slick and well edited package. Judges are thinking about the total video in a more comprehensive way and 3 judges work on a points system with the total calculated independently for the overall winners with a set judging criteria.

Once judging has concluded we’ll contact you via your handle and get your postal address to send you your prize if you’re successful.

Judges and Judging

Here’s what the Judges are looking for when judging Trike Racer Video Slam Competition Entries.

Trike Racer HPV Video Slam Judging Rubric pdf

1. Did the Entrant follow the Official Rules including How to Enter

2. How does the Entry fare against the published Judging Criteria Rubric? Every Entry should be judged on its own merit, based on the established criteria. The Judging Criteria allows the judges to focus their attention on the qualities that are going to be weighed and assigned a value or score.

3. Judging will also include:

  • Impact – what you feel when you first view the Entry. Does the video evoke an emotion from the viewer? Does the video engage you from the onset or does it lose momentum?
  • Creativity – how the Entrant was able to convey their idea, story or thought in an original and imaginative way through their lens, narrative, performance, etc.
  • Style – how the Entrant is able to showcase their personal originality and technique to influence how the video is presented and interpreted.
  • Subject Matter – was the subject matter addressed in the narrative, footage and music (if applicable) in the video?
  • Story Telling – how the Entrant is able to let their Video Entry evoke the viewer’s imagination, which may differ by each viewer. Is the story being told the right story?

4. Does the Subject Matter/Content fall within the requirement? Is it relevant? What is the Impact? What does the Entry emote, within a Visual, Emotional and Aesthetic context?

5. Even if the Technical Requirements have all been met, does the Video Entry create the visual impact that it should? Does the Entry exude technical excellence? Here are some examples of what to look for:

  • Performance – if there’s any interviews, do the speaker(s) know what they are talking about and do you believe them?
  • Production – the quality of the video including how smooth the transitions are, and whether the editing compliments the flow of content. Having that finished look. Was the Video Entry truly ready to be entered or were some finishing touches, edits still required?
  • Focus – the video in its entirety should be in focus, as sharp focus is key. Avoid extensive and sharp movements while filming. Video movement should be smooth and transparent.
  • Lighting – how the Entrant was able to use and/or control light. Was the lighting applied in the video (manmade or natural) properly used to enhance the visuals? Is the entrant and images clearly visible, centered, in focus and without any glare? Was the video well-lit throughout filming and each shot properly exposed?
  • Background – is the background unappealing, messy, unattractive or distracting? Was the background considered in the editing and filming process?
  • Audio – the audio/sound should be heard and the dialogue should be intelligible and dynamically balanced. The sound in all shots should have the same volume.
  • Music – if music is required and/or allowed to be included in your video entry ensure that it is appropriate and engaging to the listener. However, obtaining appropriate music that you can legally use will be problematic. Please be aware that you cannot use music without proof of permission or royalty-free as you may infringe on the copyright rights of the publisher, the composer, the performer, mixers, master, their heirs, et al.
  • Graphics/Titles – do the graphics, titles and other graphic elements such as logos look great and match a theme across the video. Are there any design elements in the graphics that look great including fonts, logos, colours etc.

6. Does the Video Entry tell a full story? What is the overall impression? What is the effect? Does the Video Entry stand on its own, as complete and outstanding? Does it have the Wow! Factor?

And finally, the Judges are selected by the AIPP to judge their Contest Entries ideally are experts or have some degree of expertise in what they are judging. Entrants can gain a sense of fair play when they see that the winner was chosen by experts. It should be noted that Sponsors can also be a part of the Judges Group as they are the experts in what their brand and marketing goals are.
