Panasonic Announces Second-Annual ‘Shoot It. Share It’ Video Contest

Panasonic debuted its second annual “Shoot It. Share It” on-line video competition for users of its AG-AF100 large image HD cinema camera. From February 6 through March 7, Panasonic is accepting video contest entries from users of the AF100 — a professional micro 4/3-inch video camcorder for high-definition video recording — for the opportunity to showcase their creative work and win production equipment.

At, contestants can submit up to five videos (each up to five minutes in length) in six categories — nature, short film, commercial, music video, documentary, or student — demonstrating their creative work with the AF100. A grand prize, consisting of a Panasonic 42” TH-42BT300U Pro Plasma Reference Monitor plus a Vocas Micro Four Thirds to Prime Lens Adapter (valued at more than $5,000), will be awarded to the contest winner. A Vocas Matte Box and Rail system will be awarded to each of the category winners.

From March 12 through April 4, the public can choose among 18 semi-finalists (three per category) and vote on-line at for the first-place winner in each category. A panel of judges will select the grand prize winner.

The category winners and the grand prize winner will be announced during the NAB 2012 show in Las Vegas, NV (April 16-19), as well as on the contest web site.
