Upload Contests

Segments produced between November 7, 2017 and October 31, 2018 are eligible. These contests DO NOT cost extra to enter. Schools competing in upload contests must submit their entries online by 11:59PM CST on Friday, November 2nd.

Broadcast stories under 4 minutes, providing coverage of a person, topic, or event. This is a journalism contest. Stories should adhere to journalistic standards and ethics and demonstrate strong shooting, editing, writing, and overall storytelling. One entry per school.

Time limit: 4 - 8 minutes. Gratuitous use of profanity, violence, and/or sexual content will not be eligible for award or screening, but will receive a critique. Entries that include music or content that the student or school does not have the rights or permission to use will be disqualified. One entry per school.

This is a wide-open production category, with a time limit of no more than 3 minutes. The first objective for judges is to find real humor—something clever, well-produced, and well-played.  The entries may be parodies, satires, original skits, not necessarily journalistic in nature. Originality will get extra consideration. One entry per school.
