Sat February 28, 2015

Canon U.S.A. recently opened the Project Imagination: The Trailer contest for submissions.

For the first time ever, your life can become a movie trailer that inspires a Hollywood film. Based on the concept that anything in life can be made into a movie, and every movie starts with a trailer, Canon’s newly launched Trailer Editor tool at imagination.usa.canon.com allows users of all skill levels, even those who have never picked up a camera before, to easily turn everyday photo and video footage into a creative movie trailer, with titles, Hollywood style voice-overs and epic soundtracks.

  • No Purchase or payment of any kind is necessary to enter or win this contest.
  • You must be at least 13 years old and a legal resident of one of the 50 United States or D.C.
  • The Trailer must not prominently (as determined by Sponsor in its discretion) depict or refer to any brand or trademark other than Canon. If a Trailer prominently (as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion) depicts or refers to any brand or trademark other than Canon, Sponsor will have the right in its sole discretion to remove or blur such brand or trademark.
  • If any person or entity other than the entrant (such as, for example, any writer, assistant director, co-director or cinematographer) made any contribution to a Trailer (each a “Contributor”), the entrant must secure in writing prior to entry all necessary Clearances from all such persons or entities for the submission of the Trailer in the Contest and the use by the Sponsor Parties of the Trailer as permitted hereunder. If a Trailer submitted by a Finalist includes contributions from one or more Contributors, the Finalist may, in connection with the Finalist verification process described in Section 8, in his or her discretion identify a maximum of two (2) such individual Contributors (i.e. persons, not companies or other entities) who will be eligible to receive a Contributor Prize (as described below) if the Finalist becomes a Grand Prize winner, upon compliance with the requirements set forth in these Official Rules.

One winning trailer selected by Ron Howard and Josh Hutcherson will ultimately inspire a short film in which Hutcherson will star and produce.

Prizes

Grand Prize: One (1) Grand Prize will be offered. The Grand Prize – approximate retail value (“ARV”)  is $4,700 – consists of the following.
