Video and photography enthusiasts in the MIT community have two opportunities in January to create and share their work.
MIT TechTV presents the second IAP Video Contest for MIT students, as well as YourMIT, an opportunity for the broader community to contribute to a multimedia extravaganza reflecting the MIT experience.
The video contest enables students to show the world what they love about engineering, science or just MIT in general, via online video. The contest kicks off at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9 with an information session in Room 9-057. Videos may be uploaded from Jan. 9-27, with a final show on Wednesday, Jan. 30. The winner of the contest will receive a new Apple iPod Touch. For full information about submissions, voting and judging, see web.mit.edu/techtv/IAPVideoContest.
YourMIT aims to reflect the rich and diverse residential, academic and workplace experiences at MIT. Faculty, staff and students are invited to contribute as many photos and short videos as they like; TechTV staff will edit them and the resulting video will be shown on Friday, Feb. 1. Submissions are due on Wednesday, Jan. 30. After the showing, a web gallery with more information about the individual works will be available. For more information, go to web.mit.edu/techtv/yourmit.
