Imagine Dragons reveal 'Make The Cut' editing contest

Imagine Dragons wants to collaborate with YOU on their next music video!

The band has teamed up with Adobe for the 25th Anniversary of Premiere Pro for a specialised campaign entitled Make The Cut.  In an industry first, Adobe Premiere users will be able to download an hour of raw footage from the video shoot, giving aspiring directors a chance to create a finished product of their own and chance to win $25,000.

Download exclusive, uncut music video footage and work with Adobe Premiere Pro CC to create your own edit of the video for their new hit song ‘Believer.’ You have 25 days to make your cut and show the world your editing chops—deadline is April 8th.

A panel of luminary judges, including: Imagine Dragons themselves; editor/director of ‘Believer’ official music video Matt Eastin; Adobe CMO Ann Lewnes; and top editors Kirk Baxter, Billy Fox, Vinnie Hobbs and Angus Wall—will select the ultimate winner of the $25,000 Grand Prize and bragging rights.

There will also be bonus prizes of $1,000 each and a year-long subscription to Creative Cloud for four special categories: Fan Favourite, Most Unexpected, Best Young Creator, and Best Short Form. And one special bonus prize of $2,500, a year-long subscription to Creative Cloud and 25 Adobe Stock credits for the cut with the best use of supplied Adobe Stock clips.

Fame and fortune may await you. Will you make the cut?
