Your Complete Guide to Listen Carefully’s Video Contest

04 Dec 2015

If you’re thinking about entering Listen Carefully’s video contest, you might have questions you want answered before you participate. You’re excited to win the private Maddie & Tae concert, but you’re not sure how it works? Not to worry you’re covered.

Read on to learn everything you need to know about how you can win a private concert from Maddie & Tae and other great prizes.

How old do I have to be to enter?

The contest is open to ages 13 to 18 years old. You must be 13 years old in May 2016 or 18 years old right now. If you’re 12 years old, try to find a team member who will be 13 next May.

Can I participate if I am homeschooled?

At this time, the video contest is not open to students who are homeschooled. But, this is only to make the contest fair and equal. Most home school students do not have the same resources as students who are enrolled in a private or public school, which means that their video contest entries might not have the technology to create an equal contest entry. Plus, your living room might not fit Maddie & Tae and their band.

How do I create the video?

Use your imagination! We’ll watch anything made with an iPhone, video camera, camera, tablet or anything in between.

What do I need to include?

Most importantly, your video needs to create awareness for noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). If you need a little guidance on what NIHL is, make sure you click here to learn more. You can create a flash mob, put on a news program or even use your pet to show how you protect your hearing. Use your imagination because nothing is too far out of the box! Just remember, the video can’t be more than 45 seconds, including the animated logo.

When is the video due?

The deadlines for the contest are as follows:

Submissions Open: November 15, 2015 (Open now!)

Submissions Close: January 11, 2016

How does voting work?

We’ll display all of the videos on our website. Make sure you encourage your family and friends to vote for your video.

The video with the most votes will win a private concert from Maddie & Tae!
