As everyone already knows, Aveda Institute Professional Hair and Make-Up Schools, all across Canada are sponsoring the Look Good, Do Good, Feel Good Video Contest.
RULES Each Miss Teenage Canada Delegate should upload ten seconds of herself looking good, doing good and feeling good. No talking. The soundtrack should be ambient sounds only. DEADLINE: July 1st is the cut-off and we’ll be hard pressed to cut together the video in time for the pageant.
Here is Lauren Howe’s video that we made last week at the High Park Zoo; this will have her name and Miss Teenage Canada 2011 title superimposed at the bottom of the screen. We also shot some footage of her thanking Aveda Institute that we’ll use at the end of the video.
Upload your ten second clip to the MissTeenCanadaBlogNetwork.com/video page as soon as possible.
For more information on what’s expected read the Look Good, Do Good, Feel Good project manifest.
We are hoping to see 2012 Miss Teenage Canada Finalists doing outrageous acts of kindness while dressed for the runway with max glam, complete with sash and crown.
Some easy-to-shoot sequences would include helping an elder person cross a busy street, or carrying groceries, picking up trash beside a lonely highway, planting trees in the Tar Sands or whatever fabulous idea you can imagine…
Nice work Somer McNeil, Miss Teenage Comox Valley 2012. When we use this clip below, it will have Somer’s info superimposed at the bottom of the screen, and be set to different music of course – that’s why no music is necessary in your submissions.
Each subject should remember to show the ‘feel good’ part. Smiling with satisfaction is important, especially if the action was really outrageous!
Each participant will shoot their video, and then perhaps edit it down to keep it within the 10 second maximum (ideally it should be just one shot) and upload it to,
VOTING – Get hearts by using your blog, Facebook, Twitter or smart phone to get your friends and family to vote. The top ten most popular videos will win prizes outlined below, and be featured in a professionally edited digital movie set to fabulous music and shared with the world.
Delegates please note, if your camera makes any format other than mp4 you must use YouTube or another 3rd party video hosting website to upload, and then share URL on our website as per options
DEADLINE- July 1st
The contest administrators will review all submissions and a panel of independent judges will narrow the search down and decide on the most unique, original, charming, funny or compelling submissions to be included in the final piece. The top selections will be edited together and set to music in a montage of ‘heroic beauty in action’ sequences.
PROMOTING YOUR SUBMISSIONS – All submissions should be blogged about, with video embeds if possible, and include behind-the-scenes pictures and anecdotes. All blogs should link to http://avedainstitute.ca under the keywords “Canada’s Best Professional Hair and Beauty School”. read that last sentence again its really important.
