The Social Media Star Award 2017

From breaking news to massive online networks, social media has certainly taken the world by storm. And if you’re participating in this year’s The 5-Min Video Challenge: Connecting Lives, you could well be our next Social Media Star – and stand a chance to walk away with US$ 3,000!


All you have to do is follow 3 simple steps:

  1. Upload a 30-seconds trailer of your entry onto your social media pages (Instagram, Facebook or YouTube).
  2. Hashtag #The5MinVideoChallenge, #Singtel, and #SocialMediaStar.
  3. Encourage your friends to like or follow your submission (more is better)!

The contest is open from now till 21 November 2017, and the winner whose trailer garners the most likes and shares on social media will be announced during the exclusive Gala Dinner featuring all local finalists.

Making the perfect trailer is no small feat. And beyond crushing a 5-min video down to just 30-seconds, a trailer is essentially taking the essence of your film and re-creating it into a mini story of its own; giving it life and a distillation of experience. In other words, originality.

With that said, do you have what it takes to become our next Social Media Star? Upload your film trailers and let’s find out!
