    FAQs

    When is the deadline to submit my video? Submit your video any time before August 26, but the sooner the better.

    How long will it take to upload my video? Upload time depends on your connection speed and the size of your final video file. Larger files will always transfer faster over hard lines than by a wireless connection.

    Will I get an email when my video has successfully uploaded? No, but there will be a confirmation that the upload was successful.

    Can I upload more than one video? Yes, however each video must be uploaded individually. Simply fill out the upload form again and submit a new file.

    Where can I find upload instructions? Watch the how-to video on this site.

    How should I shoot my video? Use your smartphone or other video recording device, and place yourself in the center of the screen. Make sure there is enough light so we can see your face and remember to use earphones so all we hear is your voice. Setting your camera to the highest quality is best. If using a smartphone, remember to turn your camera sideways to record in a horizontal orientation.

    Can I email my video? No. Emailing a video will further compress the video and decrease the quality.

    Can I submit a link to my video? Yes. You can provide a link on the upload submission form.
