Calling all creators!
Music video competition
Bob Marley died at 36. Too young.
This year, I'm teaming with Movember, the global charity tackling men’s health, to honor him & raise awareness / funds. Movember has one goal: to stop men dying too young.
My take on his "Is This Love" is out now (audio video below).
Am putting up $600 to encourage you to make videos with it. Deadline is November 30, though getting the video up earlier will allow more exposure.
Create a music video using the song to win.
You can get an MP3 copy below.
"Best video" wins $500. I will choose the winner and feature it on my social media.
"People’s choice" video wins $100. This prize goes to the most viewed video by Dec 15 midnight EST.
Will be promoting cool videos you create on my socials and on this website.
Anything goes - from video newbies, lip synchers, Tik Tokers, dancers to budding Steven Spielbergs. There are no bounds to your creativity, though I will not be in the video. Creative takes on mustache culture welcome too.
Once you make a video, upload it to your YouTube channel. Please send me a link to team@Meresha.com. Feel free to shout it out on your socials (tag me @Mereshas).
I will send you a link to an MP3 of the song when you sign up below. You can use this in your video. You are acknowledging the terms of this contest below by submitting.
Submissions close at 11:59 EST on November 30, 2019, though you can post publicly anytime from November 1.
Views, comments, thumbs up & social media visibility will increase your exposure, but the "Best Video" winner will finally be decided by Meresha based on factors including overall quality. The winning videos will be considered a "Work for Hire".
You must follow YouTube rules, incl. on Copyright. All uses are subject to our approval. Meresha may post about entries and entrants on places like Meresha.com or Meresha social channels.
The winners will sign a release and provide a HD file of their work. All uploads may be monetized by the rights holders for the music recording, and paid accordingly. You will likely see a Copyright claim from the distributor - Kobalt (AWAL Digital Limited) - in the days after you upload your video.
If you don't received the link to the MP3 within 24 hours, please also check your spam folder. Questions? DM me on Twitter Twitter.com/Mereshas or by email team@Meresha.com.
