Here’s How To Enter Our Team FieldTrips Video Contest
CONTEST ENTRY DEADLINE: JUNE 1st, 2010
We created Team FieldTrips as a way to showcase and preserve our hunting heritage and are looking for people who would like to do the same with theirs. Although we may not always acheive lofty goals with each episode, we try and produce FieldTrips with an entertaining and informative take on hunting. Now we’re looking to expand our Team with this video contest. Show us why you deserve to become part of Team FieldTrips and have your videos featured on our site.
Submit a video of yourself (or you and your hunting buddy) doing what you do during your hunting seasons. If you’re a hunting duo (yourself and a buddy) both of you will become members of Team FieldTrips, if selected. Whether you’re a hardcore Deer, Turkey, Duck, Elk, Bear or Moose Hunter, the video you submit should showcase how you hunt and your personality while doing it. Although we’re not looking for a comedy, we like a sense of humor, so don’t be afraid to “cut-up” a little on your footage. Our FieldTrips episodes are anywhere from 3 – 10 minutes so try and pack as much information, entertainment and hard-core hunting action into your submissions as you can. Your video submission should be NO LONGER than 10 minutes so show us your best stuff. Remember, the videos that are interesting and informative will get the nod from Dan and I as the newest member(s) of Team FieldTrips. Shooting an animal on video is NOT a requirement for this contest. If you’ve got good encounters on video, or you’ve got a great teaching segment on how to hang a treestand safely and properly, that might be enough to win. Who knows, your personality on video might be what we’re looking for! We’re looking for a couple more “Average Joes” like us who like to video their hunts and maybe take them to the next level.
So go ahead, scour your existing footage and put your thinking caps on for this season’s footage yet to be filmed. Be safe and start recording! We assume no responsibility for the creation of your video. You are totally responsible for the production of your submitted video and the results of filming it. When you submit your video, you agree that it becomes the property of Heritage Hunters LLC and you authorize us to use it on our website, on television, or in any other public medium we choose. Videos must not contain any ads or commercial content. We reserve the right to edit your footage, add a head and/or tail as well as our contact information to the videos before posting them online. If your video is selected, you will win the following:
* Membership to “Team FieldTrips” and the opportunity to showcase your hunting videos on www.theheritagehunters.com
* Team FieldTrips Swag (including Team FT Hat, Truck Decal, T-shirt and Sweatshirt)
* Sling Shot Hunting Pack by Sportsman’s Outdoor Products (http://www.sophuntinggear.com/hornhunter.html)
* Waterproof Scope Cover also by Sportsman’s Outdoor Products
* 1 Pair of Numa Optics Sunglasses (your choice of style) (www.numaoptics.com)
* A brand new Roscoby Riser Cam (www.roscoby.com)
* Opportunities to receive gear from our sponsors
We want you to show us who you are, how you hunt and some of the heritage behind your hunting style. We want to see average Joes like us trying to lay down footage of their hunting exploits. The footage does not have to be edited, but 10 minutes of nicely edited footage will certainly help your chances of winning. Remember, we’re looking for new members of Team FieldTrips that can record AND produce hunting footage to be featured on our site in our FieldTrips video section. Make sure you don’t have any copyrighted material on your footage. If you’re using music of some sort, make sure you’ve got permission to use it.
Format: Please either submit finished videos that we can upload directly to YouTube such as QuickTime .MOV, Windows .AVI, or .MPG files ON 1 DVD or Data Disc, or send your raw footage to us on a mini-DV tape.
Also, an outline of what is on the footage must accompany the tape or DVD. The outline doesn’t have to be real detailed but something for us to go by when we’re viewing the footage or if we decide to watch a segment of your footage again to decide the winner (In other words, tell us what’s on your footage in order). Make sure to include your contact information (name, address, email, and phone number) on the outline that accompanies the DVD or Mini-DV tape so we can get in touch with you if you win.
Send Your Data Disc, DVD or Mini-DV to:
