NEWS FEATURE - Short Form
Stories that run no more than 2 minutes, providing coverage of a news or feature topic or event. Reminder: This is a journalism contest. Stories should adhere to journalistic standards and ethics and demonstrate strong shooting, editing, writing, and overall storytelling. Note: Light features are welcome in this category as long as they are journalistic pieces. One entry per school.
NEWS FEATURE - Long Form
In-depth stories that run between 2 and 5 minutes, providing coverage of a news or feature topic or event. Reminder: This is a journalism contest. Stories should adhere to journalistic standards and ethics and demonstrate strong shooting, editing, writing, and overall storytelling. Stories in this category should be about issues, topics, or events that justify the longer story length. This is not a category for light features. 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.
