Conde Nast Traveler is celebrating the little moments that travelers can quickly capture — most likely on their smartphones — with the launch of Shorties, its film festival for travel videos lasting less than 60 seconds.
Travelers can upload videos into four time-based categories, including 6 seconds, 15 seconds, 30 seconds, and 60 seconds long. Participants can submit videos by uploading them to cntraveler.com/shorties or to Twitter, Vine and Instagram by using the hashtags #TravelerShorties and #ContestEntry.
The video will be vetted by tastemakers, filmmakers, and Traveler editors and announced on March 31. The winner will receive a trip to Dubai. Another winner, determined by popular consumer vote, will receive a Norwegian Cruise Line vacation.
The storied travel publication isn’t the first to embrace the new short form videos. Airbnb created its first film out of 6-second Vines submitted by users from around the world in September 2013.
