What's Your Classic? Video Competition

At Footman James, we're giving you the chance to win up to £250 towards a classic vehicle insurance policy with us!

To enter, we'd like you to film yourself with your classic cars or bikes answering the question 'What's your classic and why is it a classic to you?'

We'll be collating all the entries together for an exciting video project we're hoping to use across our website, social media pages, at classic events in the future and more!

David Bond, Managing Director of Footman James, took up the challenge this week - click the play button below to see his effort!

Here are a few tips when it comes to making your video:

  • A smartphone is perfect for capturing your video
  • If you can, please film your video in portrait
  • Try and ensure that there is adequate light available. If your classic is in a very dark garage, why not film yourself outside with the garage doors open?
  • Smile and have fun! We don't expect Spielberg quality films - as long as we can see and hear you that's all we need.



To submit your video, simply complete the form below or email your video to news.views@footmanjames.co.uk. Alternatively, you can send you via to us via a direct message to our Facebook page. Best of luck!
