One student must be designated as lead producer/director for the video. In addition, the Online Registration Form must include the name, cell phone number, and e-mail address of the teacher who can be contacted about the entry if needed.
A release is required from each person who has a speaking role or is otherwise distinctly featured in the video, as well as those involved in the production of the video. (This authorization assures that those involved know that the video may be shown publicly without further consent required. The release(s) must accompany the Online Registration form and video. It must be signed by the participant(s), and if the participant/student is a minor, it must be signed by the participants’s parent/guardian. You may download the release form on the “Submit” page in the Video section.
Video content must not promote illegal behavior; discriminate against or support prejudice toward others along ethnic, racial, religious, or sexual grounds; invade the privacy of any person; support or oppose a candidate for elected office or advocate for the passage or defeat of legislation; or otherwise be inappropriate as determined by the Templeton World Charity Foundation Inc. or Ministry of Education.
All videos will be judged anonymously. It is therefore requested that as much as possible, entrants should not mention actual names of participants or schools in the video.
Please note that professionals in media, public relations, and education will participate in the judging process to help determine the winners.
