Your World

Show us “Your World” in cinemagraphs. We want to see you use this technology to express yourself and the way you see the world.  We are excited to be partnering with Flixel, the visual storytelling company that helps photographers and videographers make their own mesmerizing cinemagraphs.

Please register HERE to download the free** Cinemagraph Pro 30 day trial and submit your cinemagraphs for a chance to win one of three prize packages.

Cinemagraphs have the unique ability to spark a sense of magic and excitement, blending the best of still imagery and video footage. The subtle movement creates a special kind of allure and involvement with the clip, a quality highly attractive to clients looking for this kind of material. Conveniently, this technique comes with the perk of having a smaller file size but garners the same kind of engagement as video.

Use this cinemagraph technique and show us any aspect of your own life. Let us peer into the world that you dwell in - a day at school, a night out with friends, a trip to a remote and beautiful location, playing with your pets, cooking your favorite meal… anything you can capture that shows us a part of your world. Pick a moment that encapsulates the experience and pulls us in.

Remember to make sure that your cinemagraphs can loop continuously and seamlessly.
Please also keep in mind that cinemagraphs are in fact videos files, not stills.

Technical requirements:
- Must be shot horizontally (not vertically)
- Duration: minimum 5 seconds  / maximum 30 seconds
- Seamless loop
- HD or 4K/UHD resolution
- Supported formats: Apple ProRes 422 HQ / Apple ProRes 444 / Photo JPG (95% or higher)
