Student Documentary Competition

Entries will be accepted from November 15 – December 15 and winners will be showcased during an awards ceremony at the BEA Convention in Las Vegas in April. The Student Documentary competition accepts entries in the following categories:

SD1 – Short Form Video or Film Documentary (under 20:00)

SD2 – Long Form Video or Film Documentary (20:00 and longer)

Submission Requirements:

Promotional videos are not allowed. Therefore, a sponsor/funding source of a submitted documentary cannot also be its subject (e.g. a historical documentary about your school cannot be funded by your school). This includes ‘in-kind’ support beyond what is normally offered other outside documentaries.

To be eligible, the ENTIRE piece must be submitted for review. No partial submissions are allowed.”

The Competition Chair has the right to either reject or re-assigned an entry that does not meet these guidelines.

Please read the Student Competition Rules to verify that your entry meets all eligibility requirements for submission.
