WHAT TO ENTER / VIDEO REQUIREMENTS
Your video submission must be at least 60 seconds in length but no longer than 5 minutes in length, suitable for public viewing, entirely your own original work, created solely by you, and not infringe the copyright, trademark, privacy, publicity, or other personal or proprietary rights of any person or entity.
The person submitting an entry into the Contest must complete the consent portion of the entry form for all persons appearing in the video. Children featured in the video must have a corresponding parent consent submission on the form. The entrant’ submission will not be considered valid if any person’s consent is missing. If any persons appear or are referred to in the submission, it is the sole responsibility of the entrant to ensure that consent is given by any persons appearing in the video. The entry form will have multiple lines for consent of participants who are minors. The submission must not contain any personally identifiable information of any person other than the entrant (phone numbers, address, last name, e-mail address, etc.). Should the entrant include personally identifiable information about their person in the submission, they acknowledge and agree that such information will be disclosed publicly and they are solely responsible for any consequences.
Our preference is for your video to not include music in the background. We prefer that your story simply be recorded in your own voice. Use of music in your submission will not influence any decision concerning the awarding of prizes. All music used in a submission must be either accompanied by a license from the owner allowing its use in the submission or an original composition and recording. In either event, by submitting your video, you represent and warrant to us as the Sponsor that the music used in your submission, if any, does not, and will not, require any additional clearances from Sponsor in order to use or display such submission to the public.
The grand prize of 10 iPad tablets for the winning classroom will be selected by employees of Sponsor (“Grand Prize Judges”) on December 17, 2013. Entries will undergo screening by the Grand Prize Judges during the Contest Period and the period immediately following the end of the Contest and the announcement of the grand prize winner. The grand prize winner will be the classroom or school video that best tells the DreamBox Story as deemed by the judges. The decision of the Grand Prize Judges shall be final.
The winner of the grand prize will be announced on or about December 17, 2013.
Announcement and instructions for prize will be sent to the e-mail address supplied on the potential prize winner’s entry form.
