Deadline for submission: April 12, 2019.

  • Min Run-Time: 2 Minutes

Submissions will be judged on; the integration of text, graphics, video, animation, and sound to convey information (Media/Technical); the concepts; knowledge and opinions that constitute substance (Content); and the elements that make it unique, original and compelling (Innovation).
