Public Competitions any one can enter

Rode 2017 Competition



Oscar winning actor/filmmaker/musician Billy Bob Thornton has a message for filmmakers and wannabe filmmakers alike – My RØDE Reel is back for another year and ‘anyone can enter, so get shooting you little rascals’.

The competition returns in 2017 with an increased total prize pool of more than $500,000, as Billy Bob Thornton says that’s ‘kinda bigger’ than the $300,000 worth of prizes available last year.

New genre awards have also been introduced and include: Best Virtual Reality film (using 360-degree cameras), best 30-second TVC (Television Commercial, for RØDE) and Best Vlog. A full list of the 25 categories can be found at
