Please see below for a short, instructional video on how to best prepare your online video submission. For text instructions, please go to ourpage. You only need to create one 3-minute video for now.

All videos should be submitted before March 16th. Please send the YouTube URL of your talk to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Then join us on March 18th for a live, online judging event in which you and anyone you'd like to invite will meet with the judges (see below). They will watch each video submission and give feedback directly to you! Winners will be selected once all the videos have been seen. If you have to miss the event, don't worry - we'll email you a clip of the feedback on your video. Info on how to join this event will be emailed to you when you register.
