Video Upload Rules & Guidelines
How To Upload Video: Competitors are required to upload a complete, timed & unedited video to the "Window Tint Competitions" Group for all entries, NOT to exceed 5 minutes in length.
Competitors are ALLOWED to prep their window and have the film pre-rolled PRIOR to the video starting.
A visible timer must be present throughout the shrink, starting at the initial entry. After fully shrinking the tint, competitors must audibly call "TIME!" and stop their timer for documentation.
At the beginning of the video, tinters must state their full name, the year, make, and model of the vehicle, along with the brand of the film they are using. Please have your film in hand at this time. Once you are ready, start your timer and you may begin laying and shrinking your film.
KEEP THE TIMER VISIBLE AT ALL TIMES.
Verify Your Shrink:
After completing the heat shrink, stop the timer and THOROUGHLY DISPLAY EACH QUADRANT of the tinted window to verify that the film was not damaged or creased during the process, providing proof of a successful and undamaged tint to be considered an accepted entry.
Any entries with excessive tension or ripples in the film as judged by the Tinter Battle Judging Panel will not be accepted so shrink wisely!
Videos that do not adhere to the specified criteria will not be accepted. Participants will be notified of the reasons for disqualification, allowing them to understand the issues and providing an opportunity to submit a revised entry. There are NO LIMITS on the number of entries, so feel free to perfect your technique and submit multiple entries.
