YouTube Video Contest 2014


Share your instructional or testimonial style video featuring a Festool power tool for a chance to win one of several great prizes! Everyone with an eligible entry is guaranteed to get some Festool swag.

Some of our previous video contest participants have gone on to partner with us to review tools and create additional videos and content. It's enthusiastic members of the Festool power tool community who are willing to share their expertise and knowledge that we really enjoy working with.

Two randomly selected winners will receive $750 toward any Festool product(s) of their choosing. Festool employees will vote to select their top five favorites from all of the entries, each of whom will receive a Festool C 15 Cordless Drill. Those finalists' videos will be featured at our Festool Connect 2014 event on March 20th where those in attendance will vote for the grand prize winner of $1,000 toward Festool product(s) of their choice.
