Video submissions will be judged by a panel of five SUNY Geneseo Faculty and Staff. Each judge will use a subjective zero to five scale in each of the following categories:
- Impact: Did the judges laugh? Did they cry? Did it make them think?
- Cinematography: Was the the video visually compelling?
- Story: How well written, thought-out and portrayed is the story being told using the elements provided?
- Gestalt: How did the totality of the video strike the individual judge?
