(OAKLAND, CA)—The Oakland Museum of California (OMCA) presents a new video mashup contest asking people to showcase their relationship to the San Francisco Bay. Inspired by the current exhibition Bay Motion: Capturing San Francisco Bay on Film, the contest encourages people to remix footage from the Prelinger Archives, or use their own video footage, to produce a video that captures a unique perspective on San Francisco Bay. Select contest entries will be screened at OMCA during Friday Nights @ OMCA on February 21, 2014. All submissions will be entered to win prizes including the Adobe® Creative Suite® 6 Master Collection, a personalized tour of the Bay Motion exhibition, and two free tickets to the highly anticipated Lost Landscapes of Oakland event hosted by Rick Prelinger, co-founder of the Prelinger Archives, at OMCA on Saturday, February 22, 2014. For more information about this content and the two prize levels, visit museumca.org/mashup. The deadline to submit is February 20, 2014.
A panel of guest judges from local organizations will judge the video mashup entries. Guest judges include: Jeff Key, Executive Director of the Media Enterprise Alliance (MEA); Susan Mernit, media entrepreneur and Executive Director of Oakland Local; Masashi Niwano, Festival and Exhibitions Director at the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM); and Megan Prelinger, author and Co-Founder of the Prelinger Archives.
Contest entries can be submitted in one of three ways:
- Post on Instagram with the hashtags #BayMotion and #yearofthebay
- Upload to YouTube and email the link to your video to firstname.lastname@example.org
- Email video as an attachment (25Mb limit) to email@example.com
