Safety considerations

Read these points carefully.

  • You must maintain your own personal safety and that of your cast, crew and anyone else involved in the production of your video at all times.
  • You must not endanger anyone during the production of your video, and you must follow safe practices and procedures.
  • Your video cannot portray any unsafe acts involving live actors, and you are not permitted to depict with live actors any high-hazard risks such as working close to equipment in operation or working at heights, even to make a point or contrast safe acts with dangerous acts.
  • You must discuss safety issues with your supervising teacher or skills club coach before starting production. We strongly recommend that your teacher or coach is present when you film live actors.
  • You must conduct a safety talk, including a hazard assessment, on every day of filming.
  • If you are filming on a worksite, you must obtain permission of the business owner and/or manager, take all appropriate health and safety precautions, and follow all applicable health and safety rules and regulations.

Judging

Judging will be evaluated based on set criteria and using a points system. The judges will consider:

  • What you did before starting to film: Script development, including finding suitable locations, cast and crew, if applicable.
  • What you did during filming: Production techniques, including camera, lighting, art direction (props, set, costumes), audio and acting.
  • What you did after filming: Post-production techniques, including editing, graphics and music.
  • How well the video presents the contest theme.
  • The video’s overall impact.

The judging form is available on request.

The “fine print”

  • All footage, photographs, music, sound effects, etc. must be originally created material, or you must obtain written, legal permission to use someone else’s copyrighted material.
  • By entering this contest you agree to abide by these contest rules and regulations.
