VIDEO UPLOADS FOR THE 2013 NO BULL CHALLENGE BEGIN DECEMBER 14, 2012 AT 12:01 AM (PST).
New for 2013: This year, NO BULL is requiring all entries to include a “header” and a ”footer” on all video submissions. Doing this will identify your short film or PSA as a “NO BULL” video. Simply follow the below instructions to add the header and footer to your video:
1) Download both the header and footer from HERE
(we have offered many different formats in case there are any discrepancies)
2) Upload both the header and footer to your project using whatever editing software you have
3) Add the header to the very beginning of your video (nothing should be before it) and add the footer to the very end of your project (nothing should be after it)
*If you have any questions or concerns about adding the header or footer, please send a message to NO BULL Nation’s Facebook page http://facebook.com/NOBULLNation, or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Educators/Sponsorship/Organization Leaders: Involvement in the challenge is welcomed and there is no limit to the amount of student created videos that you can represent. You may over see as many groups as you like.
Assign an Executive Producer to your Project: Remember, this is an important position! Executive Producer’s must be between the ages of 13-18 and the person uploading the video to the Challenge site or Facebook page. The Executive Producer is the key motivator for your project – the one who’s going to spear-head the NO BULL campaign within your school. He or she will be the key person in charge for meeting deadlines and making sure your documentary or PSA follows the qualifications that are spelled out in the official NO BULL Challenge rules. If your short film or PSA is selected as one of the NO BULL nominees, the Executive Producer will receive the benefits and prizes from the NO BULL Challenge.
Create an Anti-Bullying Movement: Create a NO BULL movement in your school, and make it real! By NO BULL, we mean using technology to bully others. We’re looking for you to create a grassroots movement from the ground up, promote digital responsibility while fostering a positive school climate.
Document your Video/Short Film: Create a 2-5 minute (we will allow for a 5 second margin of error) documentary style short film (including credits) or 30-60 second (we will allow for a 5 second margin of error) style PSA that documents the NO BULL movement! You have complete creative freedom, as long as you work within the Challenge’s official guidelines and you follow your school’s rules.
Upload your Documentary: After you’ve shot and edited your 2-5 minute (we will allow for a 5 second margin of error) documentary style short film or 30-60 second (we will allow for a 5 second margin of error) style PSA, you will upload it to the Challenge website, by 11:59 PM (PST) on April 30, 2013 to be eligible to win in the 2013 Challenge year. Students from all over the world, teachers and a panel of experts will begin voting to help select the top 50 videos that tell the best stories about the importance of digital responsibility and the elimination of bullying/cyberbullying.
Rally for Votes: Starting on May 6th, get your entire student body, parents, teachers and counselors, your youth organization leaders and community involved in the voting process! The selection of the NO BULL nominees will be up to the public along with our panel of judges, so it’s important to get everyone you know to vote.
Challenge Rules and Criteria: The NO BULL Challenge rules and criteria for qualified short film/documentary and/or PSA submissions are available here!
When it comes to they way technology is used, we’re providing a world wide platform and giving the power to today’s youth to create social change. Violence prevention, increasing the problem solving skills of our youth, and raising awareness about digital responsibility and the impact it can have on all involved are other key goals for the campaign and its partners.
