  • Filming tips/rules:
  1. If you are using a smartphone, film in a landscape/horizontal format.
  2. If you are inside, use natural light from windows to light your face. This is true for cloudy days as well as sunny ones.
  3. Try to avoid filming in front of a background that is brighter than your face.
  4. Avoid filming in areas with excessive background noise, like near a busy street.
  5. Please leave a few seconds of “dead space” on the beginning and end of your clip. This can just be a simple smile at the camera. This allows the editor to cut the clip off without seeing you reach to turn off your camera.
  6. Your video can be in any language. If it’s in anything other than English, English subtitles are required.
  7. Plagiarism of any sort is neither encouraged nor accepted
  8. The content of your video(s) should NOT contain any of the following; Any video containing ANY OF THE FOLLOWING will be disqualified:
    • Offensive or foul language
    • Violence
    • Child abuse
    • Drug and/or Alcohol usage
    • Defamatory content
    • Cruelty to Animals
