Digital video submissions must be no more than 5 minutes long and be a self-containing complete project description. All video submissions must be accompanied by a written transcript or have subtitles available. Videos should be in a common video format (.avi, .mov, .mp4, .wmv, etc) to be certain our judges are able to view the submission easily.
