Video Clip of Your Entry
We strongly recommend that entrants supplement the written entry form with a video showcasing how you brought your idea to life. This video should summarize the challenge, strategy, objectives, execution and outcome of your entry. This clip will be viewed by the judges during the judging sessions. If your entry is a winner, the clip will also be used at the SMARTIES Gala, in the traveling SMARTIES Gallery, on the SMARTIES website, and for media and educational purposes. Please indicate when you enter your submission if there are reasons, such as music licensing, that restrict your video showcase from being shown at or after the Gala.
Your video showcase should be no longer than 3 minutes. This explanatory clip must be concise and should contain key visuals — video, still images or any other relevant footage — along with simple, clear commentary in English summarizing your entry. Please name this video clip as “2023 Entry Video Showcase” and submit via URL.

Finalists whose videos do not meet these requirements may be asked to submit a video for use at the gala.
