Help with uploading videos
Entry for this contest requires that you first upload your video to YouTube, and then provide us with a link to your video for review. In order to upload a video to YouTube you must first have an account. Simply go to www.YouTube.com and click the “Sign in” link in the upper right corner. If you do not already have an account, click the “CREATE AN ACCOUNT” button in the upper right corner and complete the form provided. Once you have set up your account then you’re ready to upload your video.
Refer to the links below for step-by-step instructions on how to upload a video to YouTube and how to copy a link from YouTube to share.
Britax Video Guidelines
Videos will not be considered for entry if they violate any of these guidelines. Please do not share:
- videos that depict and/or promote any illegal activities, profanity, lewdness, obscenity, or nudity. Videos deemed to be inappropriate will be disqualified.
- videos to which you do not own the intellectual property rights. Entrants submitting a video must be the owner of the video. If the entrant is not the owner of all rights to the video submitted, then the entry will be disqualified.
- videos featuring phone numbers, mail/email addresses, or URLs.
- videos featuring external Web sites, contests, or other solicitations.
- videos that include Britax, or other brands, car seats or strollers.
Contest Entry Period & Prizes
You have until Thursday, February 7, 2013 to enter. We will be selecting up to 20 winners who will each receive a $150 VISA gift card. Your video may also be included, along with other submitted videos, in an upcoming Britax video. See Contest Rules for complete details.
How Your Video will be Used
If your video is selected it may be used, along with other submitted videos, in an upcoming Britax video. Videos chosen may not be shown in their entirety in the final Britax video and may be edited to meet the needs specified by Britax. Audio included in your video will not be included in the final Britax video.
What to Include in Your Video
We’re looking for videos that feature happy families - moms and kids, dads and kids, siblings - having fun, being active, silly, sweet, curious…or just plain cute. These videos may not be included in their entirety in the final Britax video so, if possible, it’s best to keep them short and sweet, highlighting the best bits. (Don’t worry though. Britax will be editing the videos to highlight those best bits if you are unable to edit the video yourself.) Also, any audio included in your video will not be included in the final Britax video.
How Winners will be Selected
We, Britax, will be selecting up to 20 winners based on how closely videos meet the criteria outlined above in the "What to Include in Your Video" section.
If your video is selected as a winner you will be required to provide the original video file to Britax. Instructions on how to deliver the original files will be provided separately, however, if possible we would ask that your videos meet the following specification guidelines:
- 720p or 1280 x 720 HD or higher
- 16:9 HD format
- Minimum compression
If you’re not familiar with video specs, one way to ensure that you’re providing the best quality video possible is to first download the video that you’ve shot to your computer and then upload it to YouTube.
Again, instructions for how to deliver the original video file to Britax will be made available separately if your video is selected as a winner.
