  • Introducing OPPO48

    In collaboration with Vista Foundation 48 Hours, OPPO are excited to announce the new and endearing OPPO48 Challenge which is designed to showcase mobile phone filming with an OPPO phone.

    The OPPO48 Challenge is a free competition that sets out to encourage filmmakers to get behind their mobile devices and challenge themselves to generate a short one—minute film in just 5—hours using their OPPO mobile phone. The winning team will take away $5,000 in cash with other OPPO prizes up for grabs, plus the winner's short film will be screened at the Grand Final.

    OPPO New Zealand's Managing Director, Morgan Halim is enthusiastic about the challenge saying "I can't wait to see the content that these talented filmmakers are able to produce with our phones. It's exciting when you see these features that we so often talk about, being put to the test by people with a creative touch who really know how to get the best out of their tools. I wish all entrants the best of luck and I look forward to sitting down with some popcorn!"

    OPPO are pleased to have comedian, actor and writer, Tom Sainsbury as the celebrity judge of the OPPO48 Challenge!

    Tom will be judging the entries based on the following criteria:

       ●    Originality and execution of the story
       ●    Entertainment value
       ●    Innovative use of the required elements
       ●    Innovative story and script writing
       ●    Acting and character work
       ●    Production values
       ●    The films' ability to stand out from the crowd

    OPPO48 competitors can win one of 10 OPPO Buds2 Pro earbuds by submitting their best "bloopers" or "funny moment" clip along with their entries. Ten lucky winners will snag a brand—new set of headphones from OPPO worth $99.00. Teams will be able to submit bloopers via the OPPO48 Digital Pigeon online portal up until Tuesday 23rd of April at 5pm.

    The OPPO48 Challenge registration closes at 5:00pm on the 19th of April. Filming commences at midday on the 20th of April and entries must be submitted by 5pm the same day. Finalists will be announced on the 21st of May and the winner will be announced at the Grand Final.
