Entries will be judged on the basis of the following Criterion: Creativity (e.g., originality, subject, location), Camera Motion (e.g., obstacle navigation, complexity, length), and Image Quality/Presentation (e.g., lighting, settings, aspect ratio). Each element of the Criterion will be judged on an equal basis in the first instance.
Contestants accept Skydio will choose the finalists from among the contestants to be judged for this challenge in accordance with the Criterion. All contestants selected as finalists must sign an appropriate agreement to grant Skydio a worldwide, perpetual, and irrevocable license to their entry to be considered for voting.
Four judges qualified to judge KeyFrame entries and selected by Skydio will score each contestant from amongst the finalists on each of the three Criterion. Each judge’s scores, weighting each criterion equally, will be converted into a ranking, with the contestant with the highest combined score provided by a judge ranked at the top of the bracket, and the lowest score at the bottom.
The community will be permitted to vote on Skydio’s Instagram post, granting their votes to the best single contestant among the finalists according to the Criterion. The community shall include all voters with an Instagram account interested in contributing to the selection of the winner.
Each of the four judges and the community will submit a separate ranking entitled to an equal 20% share of the vote. In the event of a tie in the ranking of any judge or community score, the tied contestants will be assigned the lowest rank within the tie (i.e., if two contestants are tied after 1st and 2nd place, both will be ranked at 4th place).
As a tiebreaker on the combined score, Skydio will rank tied contestants using the judges’ scores, without regard to the community votes. In the event of a further tie, the contestants with the highest score for Creativity, then Camera Motion, and then Image Quality/Presentation from among the judges’ scores will be selected.
