    3 Apr 2014

    After watching all the amazing films and videos you've created we wanted to give you the chance to win big and turn your fan made masterpieces into a ticket to E3.
    So we’re holding the Uplay Fan Video Contest as part of our Uplay Ambassador program, giving all of you the chance to win a VIP trip to E3 by creating your own video!


    How to enter

    It's simple!

    Step 1. Grab a video camera. Check!

    Step 2. Pick a category. It’s really important to us that everyone has the chance to participate in their own style. So we have three different categories for you to choose from.

    FilmmakerCompetitorCosplayer

    You’re a film fanatic, a master of the montage with excellent editing skills. Artists, this category is for you!

    Suggestion:
    Try pushing the creative boundaries by making your own Ubisoft trailer!

    Streaming is your latest obsession, especially when it comes to show speed-runs, multi-kills or just 100% completion. Competitors, this category is for you!

    Suggestion:
    Show us what you’ve got LIVE with a stream on Twitch.

    You’re as deadly with a sewing machine as you are with a hidden blade! You always look the part. Cosplayers’, this category is for you!

    Suggestion:
    Make your own costume, write a script and shoot your own fan film!


    Step 3. Lights, Camera, Action! Film, edit, add music and turn your creation into a masterpiece! The only rule is it needs to be longer than 1:15!

    Step 4. Upload your video to YouTube. Once it’s uploaded, give it the title Uplay Fan Video Contest 2014 and add the following tags Uplay Fan Video Ubisoft E3 2014 [pro tip: copy and paste from here!]
    In the description tell us a little more about your film and why you think you’d make a great Uplay Ambassador!

    Step 5. Once it’s uploaded and racking up views you’ll need to upload it to the Uplay lounge website. Don’t worry if it doesn’t appear straight away as it has to be approved by the team, but rest easy we’re on it!

    Step 6. Stay Calm and Wait for the winners to be announced beginning of May!
