Audience Awards - GoDaddy Small Business Stories Video Contest

Every small business has a story. This contest will reward the best telling of those stories.

Small businesses are forged by grit, determination, and passion made with tears, laughter and sometimes sacrifice. The Small Business Stories contest brings those stories to life, highlighting small businesses and the people who have created them.

The submissions for this contest are documentary-style shorts of actual small businesses from your town. What drove them? What are their biggest successes? Greatest challenges? Why did they start? Why did they continue when the odds were stacked against them? What keeps them moving forward? What makes them smile?

Don’t worry about lighting. Don’t focus on “polish.” These are the stories of the people who are grinding it out every day. It’s about their trials and tribulations and their successes. Maybe their story is told through a voiceover. Maybe it’s told through a Q&A interview.

Maybe it’s not told in spoken words at all.

This contest isn’t about technical polish. This contest isn’t about getting the perfect shot. Your job isn’t to make the story look “pretty,” because sometimes it’s not.

Your job is to tell the story well. GoDaddy has provided points for consideration when speaking to your small businesses. These can be found under the Materials Tab.

While GoDaddy may be mentioned by the subjects of your film, please do not include GoDaddy logos, URLs or screenshots in your submission.

How the winners are determined:
From the first round, the top 10 audience voted and the top 10 preliminary jury selected entries will move on to the finals round to be judged by a GoDaddy panel of jurors. Final Jury winners will be announced on February 23, 2017.
