Enter to win cash, gain experience and earn international recognition with one short video or poster. The EDUCAUSE & Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) is conducting a contest in search of short information security awareness videos and posters developed by college students — for college students.
The contest seeks creative, topical and effective videos (two minutes or fewer) and posters that focus attention on information security problems and how best to handle them.
Winners will receive cash prizes and their videos and posters will be featured on the HEISC website. The winning videos and posters may be used in campus security awareness campaigns.
Gold, silver and bronze prizes will be awarded in three categories — training films of two minutes or fewer, 30-second public service announcements and posters — for a total of nine cash prizes. Honorable mention prizes will also be awarded.
Cash prizes for videos are $2,000 (gold), $1,500 (silver) and $1,000 (bronze) and for posters are $1,500 (gold), $1,000 (silver) and $500 (bronze).
The deadline is March 8, 2013.
