JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Calling all storytellers! Air Force officials are offering Airmen the chance to create their own recruiting video through the We Are Airmen 2018 Recruiting Video Contest.

Now is your chance to showcase your creativity and pride to be an Airman in the U.S. Air Force. If you were a civilian thinking about joining the military, what kind of commercial would make you want to become an Airman?

“Nobody knows the ins and outs of the Air Force like our Airmen do,” said Chief Master Sgt. Julie Gudgel, Air Education and Training Command command chief. “In my tenure, I have met some of the brightest and most passionate Airmen who I know have the creativity and pride to deliver amazing videos for this contest. This is the perfect opportunity to tell your Air Force experience and help recruit and excite the next generation of Airmen in the process.”

The selected finalists’ videos will be shown to the judges -Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. David L. Goldfein and Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force Kaleth O. Wright.

The top videos will be shown at the Air Force Association’s Air, Space & Cyber Conference in National Harbor, Maryland, Sept. 17-19. Finalists will be flown to Washington, D.C., with free admission to the AFA Conference and lunch with Wright. The winning video will be announced during one of the conference’s senior leader keynote addresses.

Additionally, the winner of the competition will have the opportunity to work with Air Force Recruiting Service to shadow a professional marketing crew and witness first-hand how an official recruiting commercial is produced.

•           You have full creative control for the style, tone and content in the video. Please keep in mind that this video is intended to attract future Airmen into making the decision to join the Air Force.

•           The video should be formatted as a .WMV/MP4 file and should be around 30 seconds, but no more than 60 seconds.

•           Only one submission per person. Videos can be submitted on behalf of an entire unit (e.g. flight, squadron, group, shop, etc.).

•           Guarantee no operations security or personally identifiable information issues or violations. If, as the submitter, you have OPSEC concerns or questions, you should provide your video to your local public affairs office and your chain of command before submission.

To submit a video for consideration, Airmen simply have to email a link to their video to AirForceVideoContest@gmail.com by Aug. 3, 2018.
