[UPDATE: We just realized this seems to be Europe only. Sorry US residents.]
Sony wants your (up to 5 minute long) shorts and gives out 4 NEX-FS700 camcorders and the grand winner of the so called PROduction awards will receives one of the first “4K kits” which includes the accessories needed to makes the Sony FS700 4K capable.
Granted the teaser video for this contest has a tad of last century weird, but that could probably give you a feeling of having even better chances to win. Another incentive: It’s free to submit your work and it can be uploaded easily, so no troublesome process to get started.
