Contests usually provide two positive things, free gear and the chance to practice your skills as a film maker. Right now Aputure is running a 1 min film making competition with the chance to win up to $1000 worth of free gear. The theme is “end of the word”, simply create a 1 min video with your take on the end of the world and uploaded it to youtube with the tag #aputurevideocontest and you’ll be entered for a chance to win.

Check out Aputure’s site for full contest rules and prizes, submission deadline is December 21st.
