If you’re a GoPro Subscriber and are recognized with a photo or video Award between June 1 and October 1, 2023, you will receive $500 for a photo and $1,000 for a video. (Non-subscriber payouts are $250 for a photo and $500 for a video.) In order to qualify for double the payout, you must be an active Subscriber at the time of the Award and the selected footage must be featured on the @gopro global Instagram, TikTok, Facebook or YouTube channel or GoPro’s news blog, The Current.

That’s awesome! Welcome to the crew. Once you unbox your camera, begin with the Quick Start Guide. Try capturing at least one photo and one video on the very first day. Then start exploring awe-inducing GoPro features like TimeWarp 3.0, SuperPhoto and LiveBurst.

Prefer to watch and learn? Check out the GoPro Tips Page on YouTube™. Every previous GoPro Awards participant started just like this—at square one. They got a camera, started planning adventures with the people they love and brought their GoPro along for the ride.
Any photo, raw clip, or video edit you captured with a GoPro is great to submit to our Anything Awesome challenge. Guidelines vary for other challenges, so take a look at our Challenges Overview.

For GoPro Awards, submit the unedited .jpg file shot on your GoPro. The file size needs to be greater than 1MB.

Submit the unedited raw .mp4 file shot on your GoPro. Submissions must be shot in HD or higher resolution (720p, 1080p, 1440p, 2.7K, 4K). The higher the resolution, the better.

The best video edits invite viewers to connect with the story by connecting with one central character, or at most, a small group. Establish the story’s location early on. Then build moments of tension and action toward an apex. Add a fun, humorous, breathtaking (or curveball) conclusion. Check out the GoPro Channel to get a good feel for GoPro’s storytelling style. Every single clip within a video edit submission needs to be 100% shot on GoPro.
