GoPro Announces Winners of the 2020 HERO9 Black Million Dollar Challenge

- 3 years ago

GoPro’s 2020 HERO9 Black Million Dollar Challenge saw more than 29,000 people from over 125 Countries present their GoPro HERO9 Black videos, putting them in the frame for a slice of the $1 Million prize fund. The resulting two-minute video is a real treat, taking in the backyards, the backcountry and beyond.

This year’s competition from the market-leading action camera brand is the third annual Million Dollar Challenge and has placed a cool $17,857 into the pockets of the selected 56 winning creators to help them pursue their filmmaking passion. 

This September, GoPro revealed its latest flagship camera model, the HERO9 Black, and on the same day launched the HERO9 Black Million Dollar Challenge, leaving just 80 days for entrants to capture and share their most striking clips. The challenge, hosted by GoPro Awards, invited people from across the globe to tap into their creative prowess and send in their best HERO9 Black footage. The only guideline for the competition was that the footage needed to be shot on a HERO9 Black. 

GoPro founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman said: “The Million Dollar challenge is where we ask our customers to show us what they can do with our newest flagship camera, in this case HERO9 Black. It’s also our chance to give back to the GoPro community in a big way. Our community powers our brand and we love celebrating their creativity with the Million Dollar Challenge video and the signification cash prizes that help them pursue their passions even further.”
