THE CONTEST THE CONTEST

About The Contest

Welcome to the One World Overland (1WO) photo and video contest.  This contest is open to anyone that enjoys the great outdoors and exploring it.  The categories were created to allow people to enter whether they already have an expedition/off-road vehicle, ride a mountain bike, hike or any other method of getting out and enjoying the great outdoors.  The categories allow for a wide range of interests and skill levels too.  To participate you must be 18 Years of age, a legal resident of the United States, have a valid US photo ID and enter the One World Overland photo & video contest.  See official rules for more info.

The 1WO contest is participation driven.  The greater the level of participation from our entrants, the more 1WO can offer.  See below for specific details on the contest including timelines, prizes and categories.  Specific Milestones must be met for the various prize levels to occur.  The Grand Prize is a build project.  The work performed on the vehicle will be a direct result of the number of entrants that take part.  There are 4 major milestones and several smaller goal levels.  There are FOUR Major Entry Milestones that pertain to the level of build, customization, fabrication and accessories that are included in the Grand Prize.  The smaller goal levels are individual prizes such as roof top tents and other prizes.  See Milestones section for details on the 4 “Build Milestones” and smaller milestones.

Unlike a raffle or a sweepstakes (games of chance), the One World Overland photo and video contest is contest of skill.  Multiple categories were created to give entrants with varying interests and skill levels a fair chance in the judging process.

Judging (see official rules for specifics) will take place in two parts.  The first will be a public judging/selection process.  1WO put together a pretty cool panel of judges and will be adding more.  All submissions will be posted on our official Facebook page under the appropriate category.  Shortly after the submission deadline, the top most liked/popular submissions from each category will move on to the final judging.

Final judging involves our panel to score each finalist’s submission based on it’s merits and category specifics.  Multiple criteria will be graded on a numerical scale.  Adding these individual criteria values will give each submission their total score.  The highest scoring entry will win the Grand Prize at the level described according to the milestone reached (see milestones).  In the event of a tie, there will be a special round of judging where the panel will decide the Overall Grand Prize, 2nd place and third place prizes.

The GRAND PRIZE WINNER will be announced on March 1st, 2018.  In the event of a tie, the announcement may be moved to March 10th, 2018 to allow for a 2nd tie breaking round of scoring.

 

PHOTO/VIDEO CATEGORIES

Entrants will be able to enter various categories for both video and still photography. You must be the creator/owner of any work submitted.  Guidelines for submissions, file types, file sizes and submission methods will accompany your entry form (emailed once you enter).  Finalists may be asked to submit higher resolution versions. For the initial submission, smaller jpeg files of still photos can be submitted directly. Video submissions will need to be posted on youtube and then a viable link (embed code) submitted for viewing on 1WO sites and social media. At no time is it OK to break laws, or rules of parks to create your submission. Photos, or videos where it is obvious that the entrant has gone beyond allowed methods to create submissions will be disqualified. If at any point during the contest it comes to light that a submission was created by disregarding the rules/laws, your entry will be automatically disqualified. This is extremely important for the drone portion of the contest.
