College students, here is an opportunity to learn and make a difference in media. The Jesuit Communications (JesCom) Foundation is inviting enrolled college students in the Greater Manila area to submit original entries to the Young Visionaries Media Competition.
With the theme “We are Watching You! Good Governance Through Media Vigilance,” the contest asks students what they want to say and how they can use media to inform fellow citizens about the coming elections in 2013. Entries can be in either English or Filipino. It should be made entirely by the students.
Each school can send as many groups as they want. However, each group can submit only one entry per category. These four categories are: News Feature or Documentary, Electronic Poster, Video Public Service Announcement for Television and the Radio Public Service Announcement.
The contest will use several criteria to judge winners. Thirty percent will be based on relevance to the theme; 30 percent will be taken from production values, performance of talents and technical skills; 30 percent will go to outstanding creativity in handling style and script, and; 10 percent will be based on audience impact. Each category will only have one winner.
