Now, you have the chance to show your stuff by designing a new player template skin for the chance to win a free iPad. Here's how to enter:

 

Video Player Skin Design Contest

  1. Download a Brightcove player design template.
    Check out what a chromeless player looks like, or the difference between a horizontal or vertical layout for the video playlist in a player. By browsing these working examples, you can think about the types of players you might create in Brightcove Studio, their size, and layout. When you download the standard player templates and Photoshop layout files, you can customize the look and feel of your players further.
     
  2. Skin the look and feel of the player.
    Here's a before and after of a "video player with horizontal video list" template in its standard and skinned versions.

    Edit the layers of the Photoshop .psd file to change the color scheme and background images for the template of your choice. Note: you must have Photoshop installed on your computer to participate. 
     
  3. Send the designed .jpg to designcontest@brightcove.com.
