2011 Year End Multi Media Contest Rules

The purpose of this contest is to recognize the increasing importance of multi-media works in photojournalism.

MONDAY January 23rd, 2012, at NOON eastern standard time (01/23/2012)

Pieces should endeavor to use multi-media in order to tell a story with more depth and bring a greater understanding to the viewer then possible with a single media presentation.

Please be considerate of the judges time if editing pieces specifically for contest entry. We would suggest a maximum of 5 minutes.

Judges will view entries in advance, and choose finalists to be viewed (bandwidth allowing) during judging.

The rules:

  • The work must be available for viewing at a standalone URL (URL links directly to piece or page containing only that piece)
  • No user name or password should be required for viewing work.
  • Work must be available for viewing for 90-days after entry deadline.
  • Piece may be the work of one or more persons, but may only be entered once.
  • Limit of three pieces per entrant.
  • As long as work contains two or more media elements (sound, video, stills, interactivity, etc..) it is eligible for this contest. A video, with audio is of course eligible. Photo only slide shows are not eligible.
  • Pieces should be viewable in Firefox and Internet Explorer, on either Macs or Windows.
  • Pieces un-viewable or unreachable by judges will be ignored.
  • A minimum of three people must enter for the contest to be judged. Judges will have discretion on the awarding of any places beyond first
