- Do you have a video that captures the freedom and fun of flying ultralights? If so, EAA wants to share it with the world! Upload your video to YouTube and e-mail the link to firstname.lastname@example.org
by midnight CDT, July 1, 2014, to be entered in EAA's Ultralight Flying Video Showcase!
Once you've uploaded your video to YouTube and shared the link with EAA, your video will be added to a separate playlist on EAA's YouTube channel
, where others will have the opportunity to view and "Like" your video. The playlist, which can be viewed here
, currently has several uploaded videos available that may give participants some ideas of what they want to submit.
When all entries are submitted, a panel of judges from EAA will choose the top videos to be showcased in the Fun Fly Zone at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014. Videos will be judged based on creativity, overall quality, and the number of "Likes" they receive on YouTube.
EAA welcomes the submission videos that record any form of ultralight flying, including light planes, powered parachutes, weight-shift trikes, homebuilt rotorcraft, hot-air balloons, powered paragliders, and experimental light-sport aircraft. For the showcase, EAA will also accept videos that have already uploaded to YouTube.
If your video is chosen as one of the finalists, EAA will contact you directly to arrange for the submission of a high quality version of the video (480p or higher). We will also provide the basic legalese at that point to ensure EAA has the rights to publish the video.
