Keys to winning a video contest:

1) Completely answer or address all parts of the prompt and stay within the time limit.

2) Make sure your facts/research are correct and from reliable sources (cite when necessary in credits).

3) Use a combination of features including but not limited to text, voice over, video, photos, and music, making sure that all items follow copyright/ fair use policies in order to convey your message clearly.

4) Have a clear purpose by researching & storyboarding before you begin shooting your film.

5) When filming, be aware of composition, backgrounds, sounds/noise, and use a tripod to keep the shot steady.
