Awards Tips Container
Any photo, raw clip, or video edit you captured with GoPro is a valid entry for GoPro Awards. What it means to live a big life is different for everyone, and every perspective is unique. Whether you’re at home with family, jumping off cliffs, showing off or simply catching the unexpected, we want to see your creativity shine.
Raw unedited video clips will be considered for the HERO7 Black Million Dollar Challenge.
For GoPro Awards, submit the native raw unedited .jpg file shot on your GoPro camera. The file size must be greater than 1MB.
Photos will not be conisdered for the HERO7 Black Million Dollar Challenge.
Yes! These are all very important. We want to respect our friends, neighbors and fellow artists, so you’ll need to obtain additional documentation for any recognizable people seen in your photos or videos. GoPro cannot use anyone’s image without their permission.
Unfortunately, video edits submitted with unlicensed music cannot be considered for a GoPro Award. We love good music as much as the rest of you, but there are legal restrictions around GoPro celebrating your content unless the music has been licensed or is royalty-free. If you’re not sure where to access music that’s available to use, simply submit your raw GoPro clips. That’s a great place to start.
Good question! Image quality and story quality help your video and photo submission stand out. Always submit the highest quality and best resolution for any photo or video. Photos should be a minimum of 1MB. Raw clips and video edits should be captured and submitted in the highest quality possible, without the addition of watermarks. Lastly, the more info we have, the better! Complete the fields in the content submission form to the best of your ability.

Please know the ability to upload content to your media manager is separate from GoPro Awards submissions. Although you may not see the content in your media manager you are still able to submit.

Please use a unique title with each submission in order to know what has been selected for an award when notified.

Non-exclusive means that you are still able to share your content on your own social channels and YouTube, you are simply sharing the rights with GoPro for the opportunity to get paid and receive even greater exposure through GoPro’s global reach. For more information, check out the program Terms + Conditions.
