After running for about two months, a panel of judges comprising local filmmakers selected 2 best films to compete at the regional finals on 22 November 2017.
On that night, the Grand Winner and Runner-up will be crowned, selected by a panel of judges comprised of known filmmakers from each country.

The public in the participating countries -- Australia, Africa, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand -- can select 2 films that they feel deserve the cash prize of US$3,000 and US$2,000, respectively. They do this by voting for their favourite films at http://www.the5minvideo.com/finalists-2017/. Voting closes on 19 November.
The Grand Winner will receive US$30,000 in cash and a camera set sponsored by Sony worth more than US$5,000. The runner-up stands to win US$15,000 and a camera set from Sony worth more than US$4,000.
