The Tribeca Snapchat Shorts program is a great opportunity for any Snapchat user to gain more exposure while also winning a trip to New York City. In late February, Snapchat partnered with Tribecta Film Festival to create the Tribeca Snapchat Shorts competition. In essence, you submit your story at this link for a chance to win. There will likely be tens of thousands of submissions.
Interestingly, there are some celebrity judges for this competition. They include Jessica Alba (Snapchat: jessicamalba), Steve Aoki (Snapchat: aokisteve), Steve Buscemi, David Gordon Green, DJ Khaled (Snapchat: djkhaled305), Shay Mitchell (Snapchat: officialshaym), & Va$htie (Snapchat: vashtiehola). Along with these celebrity judges, Tribeca film festival programmers will chose 10 winners. This is what you can win:
- A Trip to NYC: Spend 2 days at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival (airfare, hotel, and passes to the Tribeca Festival Hub included) and attend a special event to celebrate Tribeca Snapchat Shorts. Winners have to be able to travel on specific dates to attend the event. See the Offical Rules for full details.
- Exposure: Your Snapchat Short may be featured in a special, one-day Tribeca Film Festival x Snapchat Discover Channel visible to Snapchatters around the world.
- Swag: Tribeca and Snapchat have some goodie bags to give you at the Festival event filled with posters, T-shirts, ghost plushies and more.
This is a wonderful opportunity for all those that want to become Snapchat famous. Remember that the theme is comedy and you will need to keep it PG and Positive. If you think you are skilled with your Snapchat stories, create one that is under 200 seconds and submit it to the aforementioned website. Submissions close on March 8th.
If you want a chance to win we suggest you use plenty of Snapchat face filters, draw on your stories and use both still pictures as well as videos. Snapchat offers the opportunity to be very creative so use it!
