Calling all Startup Alley and Battlefield participants – Welcome and thanks for checking out our #TCDisrupt Movie contest!

Here at Magisto we’re living the startup dream – drinking too much coffee, working into the wee hours of the night and feeling that awesome rush that comes with bringing our vision to life! Our mission is to make the world a more emotionally connected place via video storytelling and we’re guessing that you’ve got some pretty great stories to tell.

Use videos and photos to create a movie that tells the story of your startup, share it with us and you could win on-stage recognition at TechCrunch Disrupt NY 2014, plus a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display and $1000 towards the betterment of your company!

Entering is easy. Just download the Magisto app for iOS or Android or head over to Magisto.com and create an account and make your movie!

1. Shoot video and photos that tell the story of your startup or show how your startup is disrupting the industry and upload them to Magisto

2. Select a video style and a song

3. Give your movie a title that includes the hashtag #tcdisrupt – this step is important, it’s how we’ll know to enter your movie into the contest

4. Sit back and relax while Magisto makes your movie

All movies with the #tcdisrupt hashtag will automatically be entered into the contest and will appear on Magisto’s Disrupter Movie Contest landing page.

You’ve got until May 7, 2014, the last day of Disrupt NY, at 2pm EST to create your Movie and we’ll be announcing the winner on stage at the end of the event. The winner will be selected from the top 50 most-viewed movies. A panel of judges from Magisto will select the winner based on the following criteria: the representative nature of the “Disrupter” theme or how well your movie tells the story of your startup (50%), creativity (25%) and image quality (25%). Check out the official rules here.

If you’ve got any questions feel free to reach out or look for us at the Magisto booth at TechCrunch Disrupt NY from May 5 through 7.

See you on stage!
