Win your share of $5,000
Freelancer is celebrating 50 Million users and wants you to share in the festivities. What do you have to do?
To be considered for the giveaway, you need to submit two short videos.
This is the most important video and is the one being judged for the competition. We want to
demonstrate to the world how Freelancer.com gives rise to the best work on the planet. So the
purpose is to show off your best work.
Here are the basic creative guidelines (technical guidelines can be found at the end of the
1) No more than 10-15 seconds.
2) The Freelancer logo must appear at the very beginning and very end of the video. We’d
love to see you get creative with this. Since this video is all about the work, think of creative
ways to display the logo using your work.
For example: if you’re showcasing a mug you’ve designed, lift the mug to reveal the
Freelancer logo underneath. Or zoom in on a piece of written content you’re
showcasing to reveal a Freelancer watermark.
Helpful Hint: A Freelancer logo shaved into your head won’t cut it this time. Nor will a
hundred people in Freelancer t-shirts holding a Freelancer banner. This time, it’s all
about the work.
(see 50 Million Video Storyboard EXAMPLE.pdf)
3) In the same video, tell us who you are, what you do, and a quick line about how
Freelancer has changed your life.
(no more than 8 seconds)
I’m John and I’m a graphic designer. Freelancer has allowed me to work for
myself and spend more time with my family.
I’m Karen and I’m an app developer. Freelancer lets me work on jobs I wouldn’t
normally be able to in my country.
Voice-overs are OK, as long as we get to see your lovely faces too. After all, it’s because
of you that we’ve reached this incredible milestone.
4) Show us your best work. If it’s a website, show us on a computer. If it’s a mobile app,
show it on a phone. If it’s a design, illustration, or animation, display it the best way you
can. Remember this is a great way to promote yourself and the amazing work you

it through judging.
