The holds the first thematic contest of Level Up series, which named as CreaLevel 2013. The main idea behind the contest is to join forces of pro and novice music video creators and make them work in pairs. Partners exchange experience, and novice gains new skills in video making from his/her \"elder\" teammate, thus increasing his/her level drastically.

Thе contest is opened for pairs of FMV makers, Pro (experienced and acknowledged creator)+Novice (a beginner without significant achievements). A team’s goal is to create a small FMV through joint efforts, with the assumption that Pro doesn’t do editing and does not work on effects but does what he/she can to support the Novice technically.

Novice’s duties include: project settings adjustment, clips cutting, making of effects, FMV encoding and making of preview
Pro’s duties include: thinking the FMV concept over together with Novice, software using advice, advice on effects making, help in searching for sources, beta testing, advice on video encoding, video upload and filling in the site form

Contest schedule
1) Registation of pairs till October 14st, 2013
2) Submission of videos from October 14st till November 14th, 2013

Supplementary rules:
1) If a participant is a prize winner (one of three first places) of Creaspace, AKROSS, Amvnews and Real Contest contest series, he/she cannot register as Novice. Also, no one from TOP 30 of author ratings of Crea cannot register as Novice.
2) A Pro can participate in several teams (but no more than 3)
3) You can register as Pro, as Novice or as a pair Pro+Novice
4) Pro is oblidged to provide links to his/her videos. Novices are recommended to do so, because Pros rarely choose totally unexperienced Novices.
5) As the number of Pros is rather limited, we recommend Novices to contact a Pro you want to work with directly (via private message, for example) with a request to participate in contest together.
