As well as the main prize, there will be additional prizes of $3,000 and filmmaking products for each of the winners of the five categories. 

This competition highlights the company’s commitment to the filmmaking community and runs alongside the launch of the SMOOTH 5 gimbal that supplies 3-axis stabilisation to smartphone users.
