The competition of creators is held with the sole purpose - to find out the best one. If several authors are at odds in terms of creative work or simply want to have a friendly competition, they have a chance to compete head-to-head. Any creator, regardless of his/her status and level of experience, can take part in the competition. The only limitation is that all participants of a duel should mutually agree to compete against each other.
D1 - 1 minute
D2 - 2 minutes
D3 - 3 minutes and more
V1 - identical video sources
V2 - different video sources
A1 - identical audio sources
A2 - different audio sources
- The deadline for creation of videos is set by participants of a duel themselves, on mutual agreement.
- The participants of a duel themselves agree upon the choice of sources.
- The format of showing videos (anonymous or not) and other additional conditions, which make the competition more interesting (e.g assignment of sources or genre of work to your opponent) are decided upon by the participants themselves.
- There's no limitation on the number of participants. There can be collective (all-vs-all) or command (MEP) battles.
