The winner of the video competition "Leopard's Leap," organised by the Far Eastern Leopards autonomous non-profit organisation and VTB United League (basketball), will receive the opportunity to visit the League's mascot prototype — the Far Eastern leopard Buba. The promotion is part of the 2015/16 season playoffs. The video competition welcomes competitors from all over the world.
To participate, you must make a short video of you performing "a leopard's leap" and upload it to your social network account with the hashtag #leopardshot (#бросоклеопарда). The leap can be a basketball dunk, for example, or any other leap, roll, throw, twirl, etc. you can dream up. The only condition is that the video must be specially made for the competition and somehow be related to the leopard — it could be a leopard's image, a caption #leopard's leap or a phrase by the protagonist.
The filmmakers who submit the most original, creative and popular videos will be sent an invitation to a match in the VTB United League-2015/16 finals where they will contend for the main prize — a trip to Land of the Leopard National Park in the Far East, sponsored by Far Eastern Leopards autonomous non-profit organisation.
VTB United League is now part of the promotion: the most impressive and memorable dunk in the game will be announced during the playoffs as "the leopard's leap."
The VTB United League began working with Far Eastern Leopards in 2015. Some playoff matches in the 2014/15 season were held as part of the Return of the Leopard promotion. The League is now the "Keeper" of a predator from Land of the Leopard named Buba after an online vote. In Buba's honour, the League's official mascot was also named Buba.
