Judging Criteria:

Does the video relay a message, solve a problem, communicate with others, or is entertaining others and ourselves?

• Originality – Does the video stand out from the rest, show creative thinking, is it unique and original?

• Effort – Did the video take time and effort, and how well was it executed?   Did the video demonstrate a good technical quality?

• Authenticity – Authentic video is simply video that comes across as real. It doesn't matter who you are, where you are, or what resources you have. If you are knowledgeable and passionate about your material and people can see that, than that is authentic video.
