The Buffer Festival and Canon Canada this week announced The Canon VIP Video Makers Competition.

The competition will award five Canadian YouTube video makers with an all-access pass to the 2013 Buffer Festival taking place in Toronto, Canada from November 8 to 10, 2013, as well as world’s smallest and lightest digital-SLR, the Canon EOS Rebel SL1.

According to the Buffer Festival, the Canon VIP Video Makers Competition will be open to Canadian YouTube video makers with fewer than 50,000 subscribers, highlighting videos related to travel, cinematography, vlogging, and/or comedy.



“We’re excited to be partnering with Buffer Festival and sharing in the celebration of talented Canadian YouTube video makers. Canon is proud to support cinematic culture and visual storytelling, and we look forward to reviewing the submissions,” says Ian Macfarlane, the senior vice-president and general manager of imaging technologies for Canon Canada.

The Buffer Festival is founded by Corey Vidal, Samantha Fall, and Corrado Coia. The festival showcases the best creative work from video creators on YouTube.
