Rules:

1. Video must be at least thirty seconds (:30) in length and no more than three minutes (3:00) long. The video must be submitted as a watchable link, such as a YouTube or TikTok link.

2. Contestants must own the rights or have permission to use all media contained in the submission. ALTERNATIVELY, contestants may host their video on a platform that legally provides the media to users. For example, TikTok’s library of music may be used in this contest if the TikTok video link is used as the submission. We will not accept a submission that contains media that can be legally used on one platform but hosted on another where the media is not available for public use.

LumaTouch is not responsible for actions taken against content hosted on video platforms, such as TikTok or Reels. Use your best judgement and follow community guidelines when sending submissions hosted by video hosting platforms. Submissions that receive restrictions from the hosting platform at the time of judging may be disqualified.

3. Video must display “Made in LumaFusion” for at least five seconds. This can be spread out but the ease of readability will be a major consideration in judging. The submission will lose significant points if the video needs to be paused or reviewed to understand the message. Bonus points will be given for creativity in how this is incorporated into the edit.

4. Video must show the LumaFusion interface for at least five seconds. This can be spread out but the ease at which the audience can recognize LumaFusion will be a major consideration in judging. The submission will lose significant points if the video needs to be paused or reviewed to understand.  Bonus points will be given for more creative incorporations of the interface into the video.

5. One submission per participant.

6. Other apps or programs may be used but the majority of the editing must be done in LumaFusion.

7. Aim for a PG rating by avoiding onscreen depictions of: violence, nudity, gratuitous offensive language, excessive gore, and controversial topics.

8. Videos will be judged on the editing first. A short video with tight, complex editing will win over a long video with better looking media. Wow us with your creativity and attention to detail!

9. Winners must submit download links for the original video and a screen recording of the video playing in LumaFusion with the timeline visible. Winners give LumaTouch permission to use their submission for internal and promotional purposes.

Winners to be selected by the LumaTouch team using an impartial scoring system.
