Notes for all categories: Categories may include videos of any length unless otherwise noted. If total video length is over 10 minutes, please submit a 10 minute sample. Unless otherwise noted video series are welcome in any category, but no more than 3 10 minute samples should be entered. Videos should be submitted in categories for which they were originally produced; although they may be repurposed for videos that might fit other categories later, they should be judged in the category most appropriate for the original production.
Class 29-Social media videos- Videos produced primarily for social media (may be distributed across other platforms later) such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. These may include odd formatting such as square and vertical videos, generally short duration (under two minutes), and may be produced on mobile devices.
Class 30-Profile videos- Videos that focus on telling a particular person’s story. These may feature researchers, students, extension agents, or donors among others. Videos may be for web, broadcast, or other distribution.
Class 31- Motion graphics/augmented reality/virtual reality/animation- Video products that use animation, motion graphics, augmented, or virtual reality as the primary ways of conveying information. Entry may be distributed across a range of platforms.
Class 32-Promotional, recruitment, and fundraising products- video productions specifically used for promotion, recruitment, and fundraising. Entry may be distributed across a range of platforms.
Class 33-Informational or educational video production for external audience/ general public- video productions designed for noncredit educational and informational uses and function as standalone videos (or series). These productions may be distributed through web channels or broadcast or be viewed in meetings or workshops, by individuals or groups. Includes how-to videos, public service announcements, etc.
Class 34- Informational, news, or educational video production for internal and student audience. These videos tend to be more technical in nature and are produced for training purposes or for paid/credit-based class settings. These videos would probably not be used as standalone products, but rather operate as components of a guided learning process (i.e. a classroom setting). These productions may be delivered online or in person, but are not accessible to the general public.
