The final appraisal meeting for the "Beautiful Zhejiang" Global Short Video Contest was held in Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province, on Jan 14.
Nine judges attended the meeting in person or through internet platforms and assessed the contest's entries in terms of their themes, creative ideas, and videography techniques.
"The works of this contest generally are pretty good and make people deeply resonate with them. The subjects of the works are various and extensive, which makes them perfect for being circulated on new media, especially on mobile devices. Many of the works give viewers a strong feeling of freshness and the authors have made many attempts in the aspects of innovation, technique, and viewpoint," said one of the judges Wu Shengwei, director of the Documentary Department at the No 4 channel of China Central Television, the country's national broadcaster.
"By watching these works, I have learnt the thoughts and experienced the daily lives of Zhejiang people and can further extend these to the whole of China, which is very good," said another judge Vikram Channa, vice-president and head of content for the East and South Asia operations of Discovery Channel.
Huang Wei, director-general of Zhejiang TV International, chaired the meeting and announced the final results of the contest.
The contest's winners will not only receive trophies and awards, but also have their video works promoted on numerous media platforms, including China Blue International, the English portal for the Zhejiang provincial government, and mainstream commercial video websites.
The "Beautiful Zhejiang" Global Short Video Contest was launched in July 2020, attracting a large number of video creators at home and abroad. Through the primary election, online voting, and judges' scoring, many excellent videos emerged that were full of original and profound ideas.
