  • You can increase your chances of getting noticed by incorporating a soundtrack, foley, voiceover or a narrative element to your submission. 
  • THE DEVICE YOU USE TO SHOOT YOUR ONER DOES NOT MATTER. We’re looking for a sense of originality, creativity and an excellent grasp of the cinematic principles applied when producing a one-take sequence, not at whether you used a fancy camera or a smartphone.
  • Submit your Oner by uploading it to your IGTV by Friday the 1st of January 2021.
  • Use the hashtag #OrmsDJIOneTakeWonder and tag @ormsdirect and @djiglobal so we won’t miss your entry.
