The WHYY Youth Media Awards honor
the best media produced by youth in grades 6-12 in the Delaware Valley
PHILADELPHIA, July 20, 2015 — WHYY is accepting submissions through August 15 for its 2015 Youth Media Awards. Now in its fifth year, WHYY’s Youth Media Awards honor the best digital media created by young people in the Delaware Valley.
WHYY is accepting videos in four categories: news report, documentary, narrative and open. Students throughout the Delaware Valley in grades 6 through 12 are invited to submit videos to the competition by August 15. Eligible submissions must have been created by students living in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Delaware during the creation of the video.
Videos must be less than 7 min. in duration and may be produced by individuals or groups, but must be produced entirely by youth in grades 6-12 during the video’s production. The majority of work done on the submitted video must have occurred between August 1, 2013 and July 31, 2014. All media used in the video must be owned by the students, used with permission, or used in a manner consistent with the fair use guidelines.
“The quality of the work sent by students increases each year,” said Craig Santoro, WHYY director of educational programs. “The Youth Media Awards provides the opportunity to honor young digital media artists for their hard work, creativity and talent.”
