Genero – the online portal which brings together filmmakers and artists and labels in need of music videos – has launched a competition with $30,000 in music video budget up for grabs.
Artists that need a music video are encouraged to submit their track and information by October 2, 2013 to the Genero website.
Genero has already provided a conduit for projects for global artists like Tricky, M83, Bob Marley, Jim James and many more.
Two competition winners will receive full Genero Video Projects for their song, both with $5,000 payments from Genero for the winning filmmaker.
10 runners-up will each receive $2,000 budget to buy existing videos via the Video Marketplace to be re-edited for your songs, or $2,000 budget for a Director Brief so you can get treatments for your song and find a filmmaker to work with directly on your video.
Artist and song submissions will be judged by Genero and selected based on their quality and appeal to filmmakers.

The competition was launched to celebrate the arrival of two new ways for Genero’s global community of filmmakers to work with music artists – the Video Marketplace and Director Briefs.
The Video Marketplace allows artists to browse and buy pre-made videos from filmmakers for their track, while Director Briefs allows artists to put out a call for filmmakers to spec.
