It’s back! Starting today, GoPro Awards is kicking off its biggest challenge of the year—the Million Dollar Challenge.
Open exclusively to owners of the new HERO11 Black and HERO11 Black Mini cameras, the Million Dollar Challenge tasks GoPro users around the world with capturing the most unique GoPro footage possible for the chance to be featured in an exclusive highlight reel and earn an equal share of $1 million.
“We are continuously in awe of the quality, ingenuity and overall WOW-factor of the videos captured by the GoPro Community. The Million Dollar Challenge shines a spotlight on some of the most passionate creators from around the world and gives us a way to celebrate their amazing work, while also awarding them cash,” says GoPro CEO and founder Nicholas Woodman. “This is always my favorite video of the year, and we’re excited to see what happens when our customers crank it up to 11 with their HERO11 Black and Mini cameras.”
This year marks the fifth Million Dollar Challenge, and it’s all about the power of HERO11. Both HERO11 Black and Mini camera users are invited to capture and submit their video clips for consideration to the Million Dollar Challenge on GoPro.com/MillionDollarChallenge or, new starting this year, by submitting via the GoPro Quik App.
Submissions close April 2 at 11:59PM PT, and the final HERO11 Black + Mini Million Dollar Challenge highlight reel will be released later that month. The video premiere will also be the first time entrants learn whose video clips are chosen, and in turn, who will be getting their equal share of $1 million.
GoPro will also be hosting a live Q&A on Feb. 9 with GoPro editors and former Million Dollar Challenge awardees to help share tips and tricks for getting the million-dollar shot. Keep an eye on GoPro.com/news for more details.
