First video contest!

Written on January 25, 2013 by Vanessa Dezem Baida in News

IE School of Communication is organizing its first video contest: The Real IESComm Experience. This contest provides students with an excellent opportunity to show to the world what the real IE experience is about and to win an amazing prize.

The contest is open for all current students of any of the master programs that belong to IE School of Communication: Master in Digital Journalism, Master in Corporate Communication and Master in Visual Media Communication. Students can participate individually or in teams of 2-3 people. And don’t worry if you don’t have all the technical equipment you need. You can either use a regular camera or iPhone and then edit your materials, or borrow IE’s equipment (see Campus online).

The aim is to provide a framework for IE Communication students to express themselves in a creative way and portray their vision of what the real experience of studying at IE is about. The videos must be maximum 4 minutes long, and they can include interviews, pictures, music, voice-over, animation… Anything you can think of! Show us what your day to day life is like, introduce your flatmates, classmates, professors, favorite campus spots, add funny videos from class projects, use background music, tell stories about your experiences in Madrid, or anything else you feel is relevant in depicting your IESComm experience.

Videos must be submitted before March 1. All submitted videos will be added to an IE playlist on YouTube. This is when students will need to prove their networking and social skills, and promote their videos online through social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) to gain support. The aim is to get as many “likes” as possible on your video on the official YouTube player page for each of the videos. “Likes” outside the official playlist or in other social platforms won’t count.

The three most liked videos will be shown at a “Short Film Festival” that will take place by the end of the semester. At the event a jury integrated by professors, IE Marketing Department staff and IE Alumni will decide what video will receive the prize. Creativity and originality will be rewarded! The winning team will receive a 1,000 Euro Amazon voucher and their video will be uploaded to IE’s website. Finally, we will have a cocktail afterwards, which will be a great opportunity for networking within the IE Community.

We encourage you to participate and to be as groundbreaking and original as possible! We want to see and hear what you have to say!

If you have any questions or concerns, do no hesitate to contact ejaramillo.mcc2013@student.ie.edu

Good luck!
