Contest Brief

This CONTEST is for a second round of Animations and Short Videos about Black History - We hope that people who participated in past contests will try again. These animations will be posted on BlackFacts.com and to our various social media platforms.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here are 3 samples of past videos on YouTube:

https://youtu.be/MrBUPUAi5qY
https://youtu.be/MG570oax3bs
https://youtu.be/ocIb5FRiHSU

These were done by a previous contractor who is no longer available but we loved his work and we want to build more videos with fresh new ideas.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In this round we will provide the 3 Topics for your Videos.

YOU MUST SUBMIT ALL 3 IN ORDER TO BE CONSIDERED:
Remember We really want to do videos that capture people’s EMOTIONS and ASPIRATIONS:
1 - The Middle Passage (The road to Slavery in North America)
2 - Black Wall Street (The History and the the Destruction)
3 - The Great Migration (Blacks moving North for freedom and opportunity)

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
RULES TO FOLLOW:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BRANDING: (Using attached Logo/ICON files where appropriate)
1 - We want our ICON to be in the Upper Right Corner (small) throughout the Video.
2 - The COVER of the Video should include 3 Items:
2a - The Title/Subject of the Video
2b - Some relevant Image as the background
2c - Our LOGO (small and at the bottom of the page)

Note: The Cover is important because this is going to be posted on social media and so people seeing the cover with know right away WHAT the video is about based on the Title and background image (our logo does not need to be prevalent)

3 - The BACK COVER (last image) should be Our Logo (large) and Call to action "Learn More at BlackFact.com"

READABILITY:
1 - Readability is VERY important for these videos.
2 - This is intended for a Social Media Campaign
2a - Remember they will be viewed on a Smartphone primarily.
2b - Eye catching images and transitions with callouts that are easy to read is more important than a lengthy message.
3 - Larger Text Size without too many words and with color or clouded grey/white (50% transparent) background for the text so the text is EASY to read even when overlapping the images.
3a - Name of Subject
3b - Important Dates
3c - Key Fact about the Subject.
4 - Even if you Start with the image and they transition the text over the image, the text must be large enough without too much information to be overwhelming to the viewer.
5 - Better to do multiple images with short messages on each than 1 image with a long paragraph of text.
6 - The idea is to share the IMPORTANT points and then go to the next concept.. They can get the details by going to the site.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Please be aware for those who only posted picture without the link right before the deadline. they may submit after the deadline and that's cheating for those who work hard to comply with the deadline and also for those who use templates. cheers!

    Hello, I participated in the previous competition, but I will not win, and now I want to participate in your new competition, but I want you to watch my previous videos, and I want to know what my mistakes are to avoid that.
