MUSIC VIDEO COMPETITION
CALL FOR ENTRIES

Why should I join?

For this year’s festival edition we want to draw some attention to the numerous amazing music videos that are produced and might sometimes get lost in the depths of the internet world since the 90s are over and there is no real music TV culture anymore. So we reserved 3 slots for the best 3 music videos that get sent to us in our Krake TV programme that will be broadcasted between 11th-14th November via our website.

How does it work?

Our selection process works in 2 steps

1. THE JURY 
For step one you have to pass our festival jury, consisting of four video experts, each one of them coming from a different corner or artistic vision. We want the jury to represent a diverse audio-visual perspective and broad understanding of what it takes to make a good music video. The jury will then - out of all entries - select the 10 best music videos and pass them over to step 2. 

2. THE AUDIENCE
We would like to know your opinion and give the 10 jury-selections to the public to vote. Which criteria you apply to pick your favorite is absolutely up to you. 
The public voting phase will open on Oct 18th.

How to apply?

Send the Music video as a weblink (youtube, vimeo, etc)! Please don’t send the actual video file!

Send the Credits in written form with your email. Please make sure your video doesn’t contain a credit roll at the end. we will publish the credits when your video gets selected by the jury and will be put on our website for the public voting.

Filmmakers, producers and artists, who submit videos declare to own all required rights of the video. Krake Festival are not responsible for legal disputes that occur when videos are submitted without permission or without the required rights of used material. Nor can they be held responsible to clarify any occuring issues with the person illegally submitting the video.

Your music should match the idea of challenging electronic music in the widest sense, we’re no experts in country music or waltz :) 

1 submission per person.

Your video should not have been submitted in the previous year. 

The music videos should be no longer than 7 minutes.

Please send your application to musicvideos@killekill.com

What are the criterias?

Which criteria you apply to pick your favorite during the public voting step is absolutely up to you. You may want to consider the following, though — concept, effort, editing, synchronicity between music and video, acting, animation, narrative, costume, lighting, set design, make up, camera work, cinematography, color treatment, stepping away from standard viewing patterns
