Trend Micro’s ‘What’s Your Story?’ annual video competition for 2021 is now closed.
What’s Your Story? will launch again next year on ‘Safer Internet Day’ which is February 8th, 2022.
In 2021, we asked the youth of Ireland to answer the below question in a 2 minute video and they did not disappoint!
This past year, we needed the internet more than ever – to entertain us, connect us, and learn. This inspired us to ask you how the internet has helped you get through a difficult year. Did you use it in different or new ways? Did you love being on it more or did you get tired of it? Did your relationship with the internet change in any way? Did you learn anything about the role of the internet in your life, the lives of others, or the world around us?
So, how did the internet help you get through this past year? If you have an answer then grab a camera and tell us! Be funny. Be dramatic. Be creative. Whatever you do, be real. (oh and please keep COVID public health guidelines in mind!)
Once your video is ready to be shared, get out there and spread your message far and wide. Promote it to your family, friends, classmates, communities and everyone you know!
There is one overall winner and four category winners. That’s a total of €8,000!
Create and upload a 2 minute video on the above question, then get as many views and comments as you can. Video entries with the highest views get shortlisted for our judges who decide the winners. You must be registered on the site to view and comment on each entry (once only per entry). You must be 8 years old or over to enter (we have two age categories). You can enter as an individual or a group in your age category (we have cash prizes for each of these categories). If you’re under 16, you will need parental/guardian approval – but don’t worry, our online registration process on this website will guide you.
We can’t stress it enough; please read the official rules for a lot more details. Best of luck!
Get the word out to your friends and family! Winning this competition includes getting people to view your video, as well as the input of the judging panel. So don’t waste time. Once your video is up on the competition site, get as many people as you can to view your entry. The sooner the better!
