The University of the Philippines is now accepting short videos with a total running time of 30 to 90 seconds with the theme “Pag-aalay sa Panahon ng Pandemya” in the categories of narrative, documentary, animation, experimental, virtual/augmented reality, and music video. Winners will each receive a trophy and cash prize for each category that will be awarded in a virtual Video Festival Awards Night this February 2021: P15,000 for the first prize, P10,000 for second prize, P7,000 for third prize, along with a special Chooks-To-Go People’s Choice Award.
The festival entries on everyday heroism and hope in the time of COVID-19 do not necessarily have to focus on the university system, but may look at different people and their lives through the pandemic, and should be upload-able to different social media platforms. Shortlisted videos will be featured on TVUP, the Internet television network of the University of the Philippines and streamed via TVUP’s Facebook page. Entries/videos with duly-accomplished Festival entry forms need to be submitted via email at [email protected], on or before 30 January 2021.
