#MyFlixelHoliday Contest: Enter Your Cinemagraphs to Win

With the holidays around the corner, it’s time for a new cinemagraph contest!

It’s nearly the end of 2017, and we’re putting on our annual Holiday contest. Last year, the theme was A December to Remember, and we asked cinemagraph creators across the globe to enter their holiday cinemagraphs on Instagram using the hashtag, #FlixelCheer. This year, we’re switching things up… but how, you ask?

How to Enter the Flixel Holiday Cinemagraph Contest

We want you to create brand new cinemagraphs that reflect this festive time of the year, BUT, you must incorporate any two of the following items into your entry:

  • Lights
  • Ornaments
  • Warm Beverage
  • Snow
  • Fire/Flames

To submit your entries, you must upload them on Instagram AND your Flixel profile with the hashtag #MyFlixelHoliday. Make sure your Instagram profile is set to public so we can see ! The deadline to enter the contest is December 22nd at 11:59PM EST. You may enter as many times as you’d like, just note that cinemagraphs which feature any nudity, violence, or drugs will not be accepted into the contest.

The contest will be judged by members of the marketing team: Cassandra King (Marketing Manager), Mehek Seyid (Marketing Specialist), and Aaron Paul (Marketing Specialist). We’ll be narrowing it down to the top 3 cinemagraphs.

When Cassandra was six, she was asked to share a story with her class…and hasn’t stopped telling them since. Now she does so through photography, video and writing, but with the same sense of wonder - and love for glitter - as her inner kid.
