How do I enter the video contest?
All members are welcome. To enter the contest you should first upload your entry to a popular video internet website such as YouTube. Once your video is on the internet you can enter the contest here:​

How many videos can I enter?
One. Only one entry per member is allowed. You are welcome to change your video before the contest entry deadline.​

What type of videos are you looking for?
High quality videos about chameleons. We want to be educated and/or entertained. Remember that this is a competition.​

Are there medals for video contests?
Yes. Like our photo contests there are medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.​

Is music and narration allowed?

I use Adobe Premiere Pro but it’s not free.
Sweet, thanks for the suggestion! I'll have to check to see if I can get a student discount.

I don't have much experience with video editing so I asked a friend. For free and beginner-friendly video editing software she offered two suggestions.

Apple iMovie - Mac
Lightworks - Windows
Perfect! I will have to check those out! Thank you!
I have received several messages from members asking for advice on what kind of video to make. We are looking for videos that educate or entertain. If you are new to video editing I suggest keeping things simple. Here are a couple examples from our 2011 contest. They are both great videos that are relatively simple to create. The first is a video from Jannb. The second video includes multiple clips with background music.
