Global Cardboard Challenge Videos

Cardboard Challenge Videos (2013)

The results of the 2013 Global Cardboard Challenge Video Contest are in! We received a ton of great submissions, making the task of choosing winners exciting but very difficult! We'd like to send out a special super-sized High Five to everyone who took the time to get behind a camera and share what was happening in their neck of the woods. Below are this year's video winners along with a playist of all the 2013 Cardboard Challenge videos we could find -- so that you can relive the craziness and the magic. THANK YOU to Adobe and Makedo for generously donating prizes for this year's contest.
