Munich, July 15th, 2010 - Panther Media, the largest original German microstock agency with millions of royalty-free - images, illustrations and a lively photo community, launches the video contest "moving images". With that contest, PantherMedia picks up a future trend in the stock and advertising market towards online videos. The community is looking for the most creative, interesting, funny or reflective videos that are based on the common interest of the community members: photography.
Panther Media users are invited to contribute their videos until the end of October. The videos are published on the PantherMedia-YouTube-Channel. Selected clips are also published in the company's blog. The winners are voted in early November. The score is based upon the views and the clicked “like”-buttons per video.
More than twenty great prizes can be won: photo equipment by Enjoy Your Camera, professional software by NIK Software and vouchers by FineArtPrint.de.
"Photo- and videographers of our community can now express their creativity based on the new medium videography", explains Robert Walters, co-founder and CEO of Panther Media. "Stock photography is now entering a new phase with the demand for online videos. This way, we prepare our business for this new trend. However, this video contest is all about fun! The videos are not sold."
