Historic Preservation Video Contest Alert for 2015!


LimeWorks.us is offering a $500 prize for the best short video of the month and a $1000 grand prize for the best short video overall, to legal US residents over the age of 18.  The intent of our contest is to find someone who is talented in videography, who understands the message that we are encouraging, and can captivate and inspire our audience with a story of something historically or culturally noteworthy.

Submitted videos should be 3-5 minutes long featuring a person, place, or thing which exemplifies:

  • Keeping up the good fight for historic preservation.
  • Saving regional cultural heritage.
  • Designing, retrofitting and/or building sustainable structures in America.

The short segments that we currently produce in-house are known as
Limelight Spark Segments”.

An example of a Spark Segment can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/user/LimeWorksus

Contest Rules: 

All submitted videos must start with our intro clip and end with our logo (which we will provide upon request) and credits including your name and the name(s) of those who helped you in any way.  It is required that you sign a release indicating that everyone in the video has given you permission to use their image on the documentary short and that you take full liability and responsibility to have secured such permissions. LimeWorks.us will have full rights and ownership of the video to post it indefinitely on our YouTube channel with no compensation for it other than the one time prize award.

Submissions need to be electronically submitted or postmarked by 11:59 PM of the last day of each month to be considered for the next month’s contest.  A video may be submitted only once.  In the event of less than two entries in any given month, LimeWorks.us reserves the right to not award a prize for that month but instead add that video to the next month’s entries. The contest ends December 31, 2015.

Please do not send a propaganda piece, promoting a company or selling a product; it must be a pure “human interest” story meant to inspire. The winning videos will be chosen based on content, the quality of the video and adherence to the contest description as stated above. LimeWorks.us reserves the right to reject any and all videos for any reason. The winning contestants will be notified via email by the 7th of the following month of their submission and will be notified when the video will be posted on our YouTube channel.

Employees of LimeWorks.us and its affiliates and members of their immediate families and households are not eligible to enter the contest.

We look forward to seeing your entry.
