Judging Criteria

Documentaries will be judged as follows:

  1. Storytelling and Research Quality

The research, analysis, and interpretation of the topic. The entry should be accurate. It should not simply recount facts but interpret and analyze them; that is, the entry should have a strong thesis or argument. In addition, it should place the topic into the context of the theme—the intellectual, physical, social, and cultural setting. The entry should also reflect the causes and consequences of an event, for example, or the relationship of a local topic to larger events. The best entries will use a variety of both primary and secondary sources and will consider multiple viewpoints (e.g., those who suffered as well as those who benefitted, males and females, people from different racial or ethnic or socioeconomic groups, as appropriate to the topic).

  1. Relation to Theme

The entry must clearly relate to the competitions theme and demonstrate why the topic is

Significant in history. The documentary should draw conclusions about the topic’s significance. In other words, the entry should answer the questions, “So what? Why was this important?” It should not be just descriptive.

  1. Clarity of Presentation

This relates to the entry’s production quality: the creativity and clarity of the script, the use of visual images, the use of music and other sounds, and the mastery of technical skills.

NB: To be fully observed.

Language: Full transcripts in English are required to be a part of the submission process.

Contest Participation: Submitters may participate in the research, preparation, and presentation of only one entry per competition.

Individual or Group Entries: An individual documentary must be the work of only one submitter. A group documentary must be the work of 2 or more participants. All participants in a group entry must be involved in the research and interpretation of the group’s topic.

Development Requirements: Entries submitted for competition must be researched and developed during the current contest timeline.  Revising or reusing an entry from a previous year or competition is unacceptable and will result in disqualification.

Construction of Entry: Submitters are responsible for the research, design, and creation of their own entries. They may receive help and advice from others on the mechanical aspects of creating their entries: (1) typing the paper and other written materials; (2) guidance from others as they research and analyze the material, but their conclusions must be their own; (3) photographs and slides must be originals or credit is attributed when they are not originals.

Interpretation:

  • Submitters entering as individuals should do all of their research.
  • Submitters may receive reasonable help from adults on the mechanical aspects of creating their entries, particularly if equipment is potentially dangerous. Nonetheless, submitters should do as much of the mechanical work as possible.
  • The intellectual aspects of the production, such as the actual writing of the script, must be the submitters own work.
  • It is up to the judges to decide, when appraising an entry, if assistance has exceeded acceptable levels and given an unfair advantage over others.
  • Advice and guidance is encouraged and acceptable.

REQUIRED WRITTEN MATERIALS FOR ALL ENTRIES

Title Page: A title page is required as the first page of written material in every category. The title page must include only the title of the entry, the name(s) of the participants(s), their roles and the contest division and category. Note: The title page must not include any other information (pictures, graphics, borders, organization name) except for that described in this rule.

List of Resources: A list of all contributors is required for all categories. It should contain all sources that provided usable information or new perspectives in preparing the entry. They should list only those sources that contributed to the development of their entries. Sources of visual materials and oral interviews must be included. The annotations for each source must explain how the source was used and how it helped the students understand their topics. Annotations of Web sites should include a description of who sponsors the site.

Submissions: Entries in all categories must include (1) A title page. (2) A description of no more than 250 words explaining the documentary and how it relates to the theme of the festival. This can or should include how the producer chose the topic, (b) how they conducted the research, (c) how the documentary fits into the category, (d) how the project relates to the overall theme of the festival

Time Requirements: Documentaries may not exceed 3 minutes in length. Timing will end when the last visual image or sound of the presentation concludes. This does not include credits.

Entry Production: An entry must be an original production. Participants may use professional photographs, slides, recorded music, etc. within their presentations. However, they must integrate such items into the presentation and give proper credit within the presentation as well

as in the annotated bibliography. Participants must operate all editing equipment used in the production of their presentations.

Note: Using objects created by others specifically for use in the entry violates this rule, but using photographs, video footage, etc. that already exist is acceptable.

Story Development The focus, theme, is present and obvious within the documentary. The story telling is smooth and flows nicely from one point to the next. There is an element of Transformation that is obvious, meaning changing or revising the understanding or known belief of something, someone, or belief that is wrong or misunderstood to a higher and more factual point of understanding. Sounds used in the mini documentary are clear and understandable. Editing of story is smooth and attractive and not distractive. Full transcripts in English are required to be a part of the submission process.

Credits: At the conclusion of the documentary, documentarians should provide a general list of acknowledgments and credits for any featured music, images, lm/media clips, interviews or other sources. These credits should be a brief list and not full bibliographic citations. All sources (music, images, lm/ media clips, interviews, books, Web sites) used in the making of the documentary should be properly cited in the annotated bibliography and credits that come at the end of their documentary.
