The winner of our GoPro video competition is Dave Meinert! Although we were extremely impressed with the more than 60 entries we received, Dave’s video stood out the most and was selected by the judges as the overall winner. We tracked Dave down and asked him a few questions about his video:
Here’s what the judges had to say:
“This video stuck out the most to me, as it was an original idea. Who would have thought of sticking a GoPro on a dog and making a friend’s music video from the footage? This clip just makes you feel good and has a great story to it. Out of all the entries, this one stood out the most to me. Well done to Dave.”
Dewald de Jager from GoPro SA
“The video shows the uniqueness of a GoPro and what it can do. The idea is fresh, and combined with a great uptempo track makes it a hit. You can’t help but like the video and want to watch it again. To be honest, anybody could have done that – no big production or expensive equipment needed, just a clever idea. The editing wasn’t spectacular but exactly what the video needed. It scored very high on music and camera use.”
Thanks for all the entries submitted by the community! Of course there were some runner ups, and we’ll post some thoughts and critiques from the judges’ feedback on those videos next week. Don’t forget to check out our three part feature on our favourite entries: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
