I want to submit several videos in several categories

Can I submit the same video to multiple categories?
It is not possible to enter the same video in different categories. If we consider your video to be in the wrong category, we reserve the right to change its category.
Can I submit a sponsored video?
The video must not be the result of an order from a tourism or travel company. It must be initiated by the creator, who may have benefited from limited logistical, technical or financial support. In all cases the validation of the registration will remain at the discretion of the organization.
Can I enter a video that has already won an award at another festival
Yes, whether it has been awarded in France or internationally.

The extract from your video will be used several times:

Excerpts must be in the same format as the video entered and sent via file transfer (wetransfer…) to contact @ wonderfrancefestival.com.
