Stay tuned while our judges are evaluating the results!
If you are tying to submit videos to the GIF Contest, but no watermark appears and @ContestBot doesn’t recognize them, make sure that you have disabled the soundtrack completely before uploading. Your video file must have no audio channels for Telegram Desktop to recognize it as a “GIF” (and for the bot to accept it). There are many ways of disabling the audio track in a video. If you’re having difficulties, we suggest googling for a solution that works best for you.
A few extra tips, in case you're having any issues:
1. Prepare your videos for publication in an external video editor (it is not recommended to use the built-in Telegram media editor for this purpose). - Aspect ratio: between 1:1 and 4:3 - No audio track! (especially important for uploading via desktop apps) - Suggested width: 380, 640 or 848 - Suggested height: a multiple of 16 (Other widths/heights may also work – but if you run into problems, try the suggested ones.)
2. Once you've prepared your videos for publication, use an official app to send them to your channel. - Send as a video (not file). - If you use a mobile app, set the maximum quality. - If you use iOS, disable audio before sending (tap on the speaker icon) – even if you removed the soundtrack when preparing the video for publication. - If you use Android, don't disable audio – instead remove the soundtrack when preparing video for publication.
