FAQ

What type of music can I add to my video?

Videos can contain any music that is license-free.  Music that is royalty-free or created by the competition entrant is also permitted.  We will review videos that contain copyrighted music with written consent from the artist or when the entrant can demonstrate that he or she obtained the material from a license-free source.  We do this on a case by case basis.

How often can I vote for a video entry on extremecollective.com?

Each unique I.P. address can vote once every 3 hours.

Can I enter a video if I don’t have a YouTube or Vimeo account?

Yes.  Visit our Contact Us page, fill out the form, and our media department will help you out.

If I win, how do I get paid?

We pay all of our winners via PayPal.  You must have an active PayPal account to receive payment.

How do I set up my Vimeo video for download?

If you choose to enter your video via Vimeo, the easiest method is to add your video’s URL to our entry form and enable 3rd party downloading via Vimeo’s Privacy Settings. Under Vimeo’s Privacy Settings, members can specify whether they want to allow downloading. If a Vimeo member has enabled downloading, the “Download” button will be visible on the video page.

Can I vote for more than one video?

Yes.  You can vote for as many videos as you’d like.

Can I enter more than one video into a competition?

Yes!  You can enter as many videos into a single competition as you’d like.  Once entered into a competition, the same video cannot be entered into another competition.

Why did my video content change from my original entry?

The team at Extreme Collective always strives to leave your video alone.  On occasion we will edit your video to adhere to duration restrictions, competition requirements, content restrictions, and/or audio restrictions.  We perform these functions in an effort to ensure your video is competitive and we always strive to maintain the original attributes of your video.

Can I enter a video directly from Instagram?

Yes.  The easiest method is to send a direct message to our Instagram profile.  We require a name, email, confirmation that you are the owner of the video, and confirmation that you are at least 13 years old or have your parent’s permission to enter.

Can I combine votes, likes, and views from separate video entries?

No.  Each video’s votes and likes count toward that video only.
