- Samsung andÂ The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon are running a contest to win a Galaxy S21 Ultra.
- You have to create a film 60 seconds or shorter and share it on social media with the right hashtags.
- You have until February 1 to complete the first round and win a phone.
If you fancy yourself a budding mobile cinematographer, nowâ€™s your chance to win a free Galaxy S21 Ultra â€” provided youâ€™re willing to put in some work.
As SamMobile reports, Samsung and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon are running a contest that will award free Galaxy S21 Ultra phones to 10 finalists who create a 60-seconds-or-less short film centered around the theme of â€œA Different Focus.â€� The project can be silly or sad and cover virtually any subject. You just have to post it to Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, or Twitter using the hashtags #TonightShowFilmFest and #Contest.
You have until February 1 at 11:59PM Eastern to post your video, and the contest is only open to US permanent residents. If youâ€™re fortunate enough to make it past this first round, youâ€™ll have until February 18 to shoot another short film using the free Galaxy S21 Ultra. Judges will choose the final winner on March 7, and theyâ€™ll have their project featured in the inaugural Tonight Show Film Festival running between March 8 and March 12.
This isnâ€™t the first time Fallon and Samsung have partnered together. TheÂ Tonight Show shot a full episode using the Galaxy S10 Plus in March 2019, and Fallonâ€™s crew teamed with Samsung in 2020 to deliver the Galaxy S20 Ultra and other Motherâ€™s Day gifts to front line workers early in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Yes, the free phones are ultimately a marketing ploy to promote the Galaxy S21 Ultra and its camera features.Â This still gives you an opportunity to flex your moviemaking skills, and itâ€™s hard to deny the appeal of getting a top-tier smartphone while indulging your creative impulses.
