DIVA's Youth Visions Teen Video Challenge is accepting short 5 minute (or less) videos from now through March 7, 2014. The competition celebrates the work of young videomakers in Lane County ages 13-19.
Each year teens submit work that is reviewed by a panel of video professionals and educators. Those videos that demonstrate the most creative, effective and skillful responses to the call for entries will be screened and awarded prizes at a special Teen Video Challenge Festival screening at the Bijou Cinema Arts Theater in late April. Winning videos may go on to be shown at other festivals and events as part of a Youth Visions Festival compilation program.
