Past achievements clearly indicate what is still possible in the future. However, success on the first try is often attributed to luck unless the same results are achieved again.
Due to its popularity, this year’s CAMON SHORT FILM CHALLENGE has inspired great anticipation and excitement. So when the time came, everyone entered the CAMON SHORT FILM Challenge with complete confidence that their efforts would be rewarded.
Long and torturous hours have passed without news of this year’s winners, the wait is now over.
And with the announcement of winners on Monday, 7th November 2022, on TECNO’s social media pages.
Powered by TECNO’s flagship device, the CAMON 19, released earlier in the year, the competition offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for content creators who put themselves out there and get their work noticed.
The first stage had entries sent in by creative minds producing a two-minute brilliant and emotional film using any smartphone. The film could be a comedy, fiction, drama, or any other genre the contestant chooses. The film must be a complete story with a beginning, middle, and end. Despite receiving numerous brilliant entries from all over the country, only 19 participants made it to the next stage.
After a rigorous screening, the top 19 contestants were picked and tasked with shooting great short movies using the TECNO Camon 19. The final stage of the competition had very creative entries as the short film had riveting stories.
