Competition rules

  1. The kite flying segment must be between 60 and 90 seconds in length, inclusive. Intro and outro titles are excluded from this time limit, but please ensure that titles are less than 10 seconds. A 20 second introduction is too long.
  2. Ensure that your kite starts on the ground with both wingtips touching the ground prior to the launch. The video may end with the kite on the ground or in the air - both are acceptable.
  3. Ensure that your kite stays in frame. Momentary disappearances are acceptable, however extended periods off screen or repeated occurrences may be grounds for disqualifying an entry. Momentary out-of-frame events can be expected to incur a discretionary score penalty from the other entrants.
  4. Except for intro and outro titles, your video must show continuous, unedited kite flying. Cuts are not permitted. The video cannot be sped up, nor slowed down. Post-processing such as colour grading, brightness/contrast adjustment, and frame cropping are permitted.
  5. Ensure that your video is uploaded to YouTube with the visibility set to Unlisted. If YouTube flags your video as unavailable in some regions due to music copyright claims, replace the music in your video and re-submit your entry.
  6. By participating in a VF round, you agree to score all other participants' entries in a timely manner. A participant will be disqualified from the current round if their scores have not been received by the scoring close date.
