PITCH VIDEO REQUIREMENTS
Creative leaders and entrepreneurs use video content to convey creative ideas, align teams behind a single vision, and pitch new business ventures at every level. We challenge you to do the same! You can create the video however you see fit: using original illustrations or designs, stock footage, original videos captured on your phone, photos, or by simply speaking directly to camera about your idea.
