Video Guidance

This is optional, however, it does allow for judges to get a more personal feel for why you feel you deserve to win in your chosen category. Judges can allocate additional points at their discretion.

Your video must be no longer than a minute and a half (your entry will NOT be accepted if your video is longer than this)

Your video must be explicitly about the project itself and NOT be a marketing video

  • Any voice, or any number of voices, can tell the story of your project or campaign
  • It will be judged on the story you tell not on the production values
  • Videos can be simple and straightforward to make – at a minimum, all that’s needed is access to a smartphone
  • You must use the 1.5-minute video to address why your entry is special and why you should win
  • Further information about the entry can be covered in your awards entry form
  • If using a collection of images, consider recording a voiceover to explain the entry
  • Videos can be recorded in landscape or portrait mode
  • Make sure the audio is clear and of a reasonable quality
  • Make sure the lighting is good when recording a video
  • If using subtitles, please ensure they are legible throughout the video and can be seen on a computer and a large screen
  • We recommend you upload your video either to your website, Vimeo, YouTube or similar and then provide us with the URL link.  We cannot accept video uploads in any other format.
