Entry Forms for last year

Media (Videomaking):



Which Form Should You Use?

Media entries are those entries which are created primarily using video camera technologies, submitted on videotape, and were created primarily for video viewing presentation. These entries will often include material created on a computer and sometimes were created entirely on a computer and were "printed" on videotape for viewing on a VHS VCR.

Multimedia entries are those entries which are created primarily using computer technologies, intended to run on a computer, and usually involve user interaction.

Projects completed after April 12, 2004 may be entered in this year's Festival.

All teachers and students are invited to submit entries to the festival and attend the ceremonies at either of the two hosted sites. In northern California, the Festival will be held at Foothill College, 12345 El Monte Road, in Los Altos Hills. In southern California, the site will again be Golden West College, 15751 Gothard Street, in Huntington Beach. The two sites will be connected via ISDN and festival goers at either site will see winning entries and student/teacher winners from both sites. Attending the Festival is a great way for teachers and students to see exactly what can be accomplished by students using media and multimedia. Many of the winning entries are simply magnificent! Attending the Festival is a fast way to "raise the bar" at your own school or district. There is no cost to attend the Festival and students and teachers are welcome. Light refreshments will be served. For information, call KOCE-TV, 714-895-5623, or e-mail Hall Davidson at
