The Prop 34/46 Video Contest — Discover Cosmos (June 12-August 31, 2021) invited Cosmonauts to use creativity and talent to produce high-quality educational videos aimed at new members of the community and beyond! Your response and submissions exceeded our expectations to bring high-quality content to the Cosmos community.
Judging the videos has been a difficult task. There were 96 entries in total to the video contest. Each Cosmonaut that invested the time to make a video for submissions has clearly put in a lot of effort. Some video ideas were quite creative, and certainly accuracy of information, originality, and ease of access were very heavy indicators of quality submissions.
There were six video categories and based on specific criteria two winners were selected from each category. Joe Dirtay, one of the multi-sigs from the Prop 46 team mentions, “There were so many good contributions that it was very hard to narrow down each category down to two winners. The submissions were very heavy on some categories and extremely light on others, for that reason, we expanded the number of honorable mentions to reward all Cosmonauts that put in valiant efforts. We appreciate everyone that made a submission.”
All video submissions were judged based on the following criteria:
- Content of video (in line with any of the six categories and overall theme)
- Creativity of video and accuracy of information
- Originality and entertainment value
- Effectiveness in reaching the target audience
- Overall video quality: video + sound + lighting + graphics
- Immediately and easily understandable
- Concise (no longer than 10 minutes)
- Valid entry meets guidelines
- Does not include copyrighted music or imagery
- Language: English with multi-language subtitles (natively translated) for bonus points
With that in mind, these criteria were followed to make sure the videos were of the highest quality for each category.
Total prize pool: 5,000 ATOM
