For the third consecutive year, we introduce our 20 seconds of Horror video contest. On this occasion we are glad to announce that Movistar+ has become sponsor of the contest.
This way, the competition attains a higher relevance and interest among the audience because, resulting from this partnership, Movistar+ is going to publish on its social networks a selection of the best videos inscribed to contest including the three nominees.
Moreover, the nominees will get a six month subscription to access Movistar+’s premium contents as an additional price.
Here are the rules and regulations and we encourage you to contribute to the contest with your own videos regardless of your previous experience in the wonderful and, this time, horrific world of short films.
