CID Video Competition – FAQ

As people are learning of the CID Video Competition, they have been asking questions. In hopes this will help others, the questions will be posted, along with answers. As further questions are asked, they will be answered here.

Question: Is the video competition open to graduate students?

Answer: Absolutely! Students at any level of higher education, from community or technical college to undergraduates, masters or doctoral studies, are all eligible.


Question: Is the video competition open to faculty working jointly with their students?

Answer: While faculty may advise students, they may not be co-creators. The intent is to encourage students to create the videos.


Question: Is there a language requirement for the videos?

Answer: The videos will have to be in English. Permitting any other language would imply having judges who know all the several dozen languages currently represented on the site, which would be impossible. However, creating a video in another language with English subtitles should be fine. Choosing to have most of the video acted out, with minimal linguistic elements, should work as well.
