The second trailer for Star Trek Beyond will premiere at a special fan event at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles on May 20th. Today, Paramount released the official rules for a video contest that will allow fans to show the world “How you Go Beyond as a Star Trek fan”, including 5 grand prizes that include airfare and a 2-night hotel stay in LA for the event.
How do you “Go Beyond”?
Paramount wants Trekkies to show the world how they “Go Beyond” as a Star Trek fan. During one of five day-long entry periods, fans can submit videos of themselves “going beyond” and explaining why they should get the chance to attend the LA fan event.
The event, which was announced in April, will include the premiere of the newest Beyond trailer, special guest appearances and more. As stated in the initial press release:
The one-time only special event, taking place at the historic Paramount Pictures studio lot, will include the premiere of the newest “Star Trek Beyond” trailer, an exclusive first-look of never before seen footage from the upcoming film, a Q&A with Lin and the cast and crew, special guests appearances, and other surprises. The Q&A will be streamed via Facebook Live.
Your video can be a maximum of 50 seconds in length (be succinct, people!) and will be judged on the following criteria: 10% creativity, 20% originality, 30% clarity and 40% relevance.
There are five entry periods, and you can submit a video for each one – each lasting a day, beginning at midnight and ending at 11:59 PM PST of May 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.
The contest is open to current legal residents of Australia, Canada (excluding Quebec), the United Kingdom and the United States (including Washington D.C.) who are at least 21 years old or older at the time of entry.
Paramount is giving away 50 pairs of tickets for each of the one-day entry periods – totaling 500 winning tickets.
One video from each entry period will get the ultimate prize, which includes airfare for 2 to LA, a 2-night hotel stay, and transportation reimbursement up to $200.
