SPARC (Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition) is offering a $1000 award, and two $500 runner-up awards, to the student videos "that imaginatively portray the benefits of the open, legal exchange of information on the Internet."
Instructors may wish to consider this as a class assignment. In its August 12 press release, SPARC suggests that:
The contest will be especially relevant to classes in subjects including: film and video production; literature, media, and cinema studies; digital arts; communication; library and information science; computer science and information technology; education; science, technology, and society; and history of science, or for any course for which new fluencies like film-making may be an appropriate expression of class assignments and deliverables.
The application deadline is November 30, 2008.
