Media Contest Description

Be a part of the next Water Media Campaign Contest!

WEWAC sponsors an annual Water Media Campaign. The contest is open to middle school, junior high and high school students within the WEWAC service area. The objective of the contest is to increase awareness of the importance of water in local Southern California schools through creativity and imagination. Additionally, the contest is intended to enhance academic instruction by providing the opportunity for financial support to do creative classroom projects that might not otherwise be possible.

"Broadcast Media" submissions are those developed to facilitate the wireless distribution of audio and video content. Broadcast media must be either 28 or 58 seconds in length, and specifically focus on water conservation issues.

"Digital Art" submissions are those developed to be displayed as static or dynamic graphical content (e.g., digital boards, movie theater or sports stadium boards, internet ads, etc.). Entries must be created on a computer, must be in color, and must be submitted no less than 300 and no more than 500 ppi/dpi in JPG or PDF format. You may work from the scan of an original pencil sketch, but the final entry MUST be inked/colored in a digital imaging program such as Adobe Photoshop. Entries must be accompanied by a scanned copy of your original drawing sketch. This will prove that it is your work, and not downloaded from someone else's website.

The criteria used to judge submissions will include incorporation of water conservation issues, creativity, originality, informational content, accuracy of information, and production quality.
