The Beauty of a Second is a competition where people are required to submit a beautiful video -- any video -- as long as it is no longer than 1 second. The 60 second video above was made with the 60 finalists. It's amazing how much time 1 second actually gives you.

190 years ago Nicolas Rieussec recorded time to an accuracy of a fifth of a second. The chronograph was born.

To celebrate his invention we challenge you to "seize the moment" and capture the beauty of a second.

The subject? It can be anything as long as it celebrates the fragile beauty of this short-lived unit of time.

The format? Cellphone, high-end digital camera: as long as your moving images last exactly one second and are shot in 16/9 landscape format, they can win.
