  1. Who owns the copyright of the videos I submit?

You retain all copyrights, but, by submitting an entry, you grant permission to Mulat Pinoy to use your entry as part of any collateral related to the promotions and implementation of the video contest across all related media venues, solely for non-profit. Please note that all submitted materials will not be returned, so we suggest that you retain a personal copy of your entry.


  1. What should I submit together with my video entry?

Here’s a checklist:

  • a 30-second teaser of your entry, burned onto the same CD/DVD that contains your full entry
  • an accomplished application form, including parental consent if you are below 18 [DOWNLOAD HERE. To download, click the green Download button in the lower right corner.]

You may use any language, although you must include a translation in either English or Filipino in your transcript. You may also include subtitles in your video, if you prefer.


  1. What am I not allowed to include in the video?

You may not use copyrighted material in your video, and you may not use explicit/disturbing/offensive visuals or language. Mulat Pinoy reserves the right to disqualify any entries that are offensive to common decency.


  1. What qualifies as copyrighted material?

Copyrighted material is any visual or audio material that is part of the registered branding and/or intellectual property of an individual or institution. A basic rule is that if something is already credited to someone or something, you may not pass it off as your own. For example, you may not use a pop song as background music for your video. However, you may use royalty-free music or music that you have composed yourself.

This extends to images and videos available on the Internet. Be mindful of the content you acquire, as it may already be copyrighted.


  1. Am I allowed to discuss religious or political perspectives?

Yes, you may.

The panel of judges will shortlist entries based on creativity, visual impact, clarity of message, and social relevance. The final winners will be determined solely by public votes on the website and through SMS voting.
