All entries will be judged by academic and professional experts. New to this year’s fest, the finalists in each category will go on to compete at the ultimate level by delivering a five-minute presentation about their entry to a community panel of judges. Prizes will be awarded to the best student work in each category, and all entries will be displayed during the Media Fest Showcase.
LSU undergraduate students may submit up to two entries in each of the six multimedia categories: film & video; creative animation; technical & scientific; informational & promotional; photography; and academic & extracurricular gumbo projects. Participation is free and open to all LSU undergraduates. Submissions are being accepted now through noon on Feb. 28.
This year’s prize sponsors include B&H EDU Advantage, CanvasPress.com, CDW and PreSonus.
