Dear creators, we are delighted to tell you that the client has finally selected the three winners for the contest Mexico Tribe
It took a while longer than foreseen, we are sorry about that, but here are our fab three, you can see the jury's comments in italics
and some comments from the :
1st place(5,000 EUR
) goes to Gregork
(United States) with his video: The Mexico Tribe Handshake
It's fun to watch and it completely embodies the tribe concept.
"I was at the beach for a week with a friend and saw the Mexico Tribe Competition and just couldn't pass up the opportunity. I had watched a kung fu movie a couple days before and the fight scenes must have sank into my subconscious! For the past couple years I've carried a little black book around where ever I go, and try to get my ideas from as many situations as possible. I think it helps to make unique connections. I've been fortunate enough to have two close friends that have been an incredible help in making these videos. I could not do what I'm doing without them. I'm a musician at heart, but fell in love with film a couple months ago and stumbled onto Eyeka a while back as I was looking for ways to monetize film. They've been a great community. So glad I found them!"
2nd place(1,500 EUR
) goes to jmharper
(United States) with his video: Three steps
It shows how to belong to a tribe in an easy and entertaining way
"I participated in this contest because I was interested in visiting Mexico. We'd heard the rumours that everyone else had, but we had lots of fun shooting and found some really interesting hideaways in Tulum that we won't forget. I get my inspiration from people who need their story told. Film is a way for me to learn more about the world and myself, and to show people what I find. I always work in a team -- we can't get better at our craft except by having great collaborators".
) goes to Valodya
(Russian Federation) with his video: Let's go Mexico
Discovering the Mexican tribe through some little details and a typical dance, well done!
"I decided to participate in the contest just after I registered on eYeka and I wanted to test my strength, as I had enough time and inspiration for it. I just didn’t manage to find out about the date for the winners announcement that is why I thought you were not for real and I decided to leave your website. Finally you contacted me and now everything is fine and I’m ready to create for other contests
Thanks a lot guys for your participation and congratulation for your prizes! :-)
Thank you to all those who have participated.
