GoPro is taking the times of social distancing and quarantine at home as the occasion for a major home competition via Instagram, YouTube, Facebook and TikTok, running from March 23 to April 30. Every day, GoPro will select 5 favorite content from all entries worldwide as part of the #HomePro-Challenge. The creators of these favorite content can choose an HERO8 Black or an 360° MAX Actioncam as a reward - in addition there is a 5 year subscription to GoPro PLUS (cloud storage, replacement instead of repair in case of defects and 50% discount on mounts and accessories).
The aim of the competition is to create creative, imaginative or even crazy videos or pictures from your own four walls. These do not have to be taken with a GoPro camera - any cam - even a smartphone can be used for this purpose. GoPro recommends the free GoPro app for editing the recordings.
GoPro&s instructions for participation are very simple:
- Get the free GoPro App
- Use the app to post a photo or video of your #HomePro moment on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook or TikTok
- Add the hashtags #GoPro #HomePro so we can find your mail (and consider it for the daily gift promotion). That&s it.
The GoPro HERO8 Black has a modular concept and can be expanded with three optional expansion stages (MODs): Media Mod (3.5mm microphone and HDMI outputs and two accessory shoes), Display Mod (a flip-up screen that makes the Hero8 Black suitable for vlogging and other applications) and Light Mod (a clip-on LED light)

The GoPro MAX can be used either as a normal "HERO camera" as before, or for 360° videos or corresponding 270° photo panoramas (PowerPano) thanks to its double lens (1 on the front and 1 on the back). Thanks to the built-in front screen, the GoPro Max is also suitable for vlogging setups.
