Doodle Video Contest

 

Update: The contest has been closed and the winners are published.

Doodle is missing a simple and interesting video that shows how our service can be used. Since our regular users are the best people to explain the principle of online scheduling to first-time users, we’d like to invite you to submit a video about how Doodle works for you and why you like it. The submitted videos will be judged by Doodle and the winning video will be posted prominently on our website. Additionally, the grand prize winner will receive a CHF 5,000 (ca. $ 5,700, ca. € 4,000) gift card for flights on Swiss International Air Lines*, the second price is a NOKIA E7 smartphone! All valid submissions will also gain a free Premium Doodle subscription.

What are you waiting for? Submit a video and your creativity could enable you to visit other parts of the world!

How to Make a Winning Video

  • Think about the people who visit the Doodle website for the first time. The video should provide them with information about what Doodle is all about.
  • Let the viewers understand why you love using Doodle.
  • We don’t want to limit your creativity! You can be as creative as you want to be as long as we can feel your motivation and you’re able to explain Doodle. You can show real people, use animation, and so on.
  • Don’t show screenshots or screencasts of Doodle. Instead of a tutorial, we want to see and understand the principle of online scheduling.
  • Please produce your video in either English, German, or French. The video should be usable in other languages (i.e. we should be able to change the voice-over audio). Because of this, the video shouldn’t include a lot of text or have footage of people talking. The production of the translated versions is not a part of this contest.
  • Please feel free to use the corporate colors, logo, and icons.
  • Don’t include any offensive content.
  • Inform us about any copyrighted material you might use.
