If you like Arab rock and have a passion for creativity, you might be in the chance for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (and a big cash prize!)...
Who wouldn’t want to make a music video for one of the hottest acts emerging out of the Arab world? Looking to give you the opportunity to channel your creativity is none other than Jordan’s own Jadal, who posted an open call out to all passionate film makers, animators, or stop motion artists to create them a unique music video.
Hoping to continue building momentum off the success of their album El Makina, Jadal has decided to hold a music video contest open to all their followers. To sweeten the deal they decided to award two prizes, with the grand prize going to their favourite video and the other awarded to the fans' favourite submission.
If Jadal picks your video as their favourite, they will not only put it on their youTube channel as the official music video for that track, but will also give you $2,000 and the opportunity to work with them on another video for the their upcoming album release. If selected as the fan favourite based on votes, then Jadal will release it as an official music video on their YouTube channel, and will award you $1000 for your efforts and the possibility of working in the film crew for another video to support their upcoming album release.
In order to be eligible win, all submission must be made for a track off the album El Makina that currently has no video. That includes: Ghabeh B'eed - El Makina, I'm in Love with Wala bint - Yum el Jum'a Dayman Ashwab - Fe Nabd Ana Has - Ma Raddatish - Zad El Sheib - Hada Yakhud Makani. All submitted videos must be made for the full song, be presented in HD quality, and must creatively incorporate a Red Bull can for at least 2-3 seconds. The only other restriction is that the video shouldn’t include actors pretending to members of the band. If your video meets all the criteria listed, then all you to do is simply upload it to YouTube under the title #JadaL_Fan_Video - Name of the song @JadaLband #JadaL. In the video description all submissions must add the following tags; #JadaL #JadaL_Fan_Video #JadaL_Redbull.
The deadline for submissions is set for 11:59pm on the 12th of June. However, if the deadline approaches and less than 30 videos are entered, Jadal reserves the right to extend the deadline, as well as deleting any entries they deem not suitable.
It isn’t everyday that a talented band with over a hundred thousand followers gives you an opportunity to showcase you work. If you believe you have the skills to create a one-of-a-kind of music video and have been looking for the opportunity to build a name in the industry, then this may just be the life changing contest you have been waiting for.
