Getty Images is running a video remix competition called ‘Mishmash’ again this year, following an “overwhelmingly positive response” to last year’s contest. The Mishmash competition is open to anyone and the idea is to create a video of between one and three minutes using video footage and music clips from the Getty Images library.

There’s over 50,000 hours of video footage in the Getty archive, and over 50,000 music tracks, so you’ve plenty of options when it comes to splicing together a video mash-up.

As well as using Getty content, you can add your own stills and video, illustration, animation, artwork and voiceover. Naturally, you’re just not allowed to use stock imagery or footage from any source other than Getty Images.

The deadline for entries is 31 October, and the winners will be announced on 15 November. The judging panel includes Shine Television’s head of specialist factual Nathalie Humphreys, the director of Between the Eyes, Emil Nava, Stink TV’s Pekka Hara, and David Knight of the Promo News website and the UK Music Video Awards.
