Spring 2021 Competition: Culinary Cultures
Am I eligible to enter?
You just need to be...
- a Kennesaw State student
- an undergraduate student
- enrolled in a foreign language course this semester
What can I win?
There are four awards available. Three prizes are awarded by a panel of DFL faculty judges: 1st Place - $200, 2nd Place - $150, 3rd Place - $100.
There will also be a Student Choice award of $50, selected by the Kennesaw State student body.
Money is cool! But I won't get paid in BitCoin or gift cards, will I?Awards are paid by check from the Kennesaw State bursar.
Does my video have to be in a specific language?English-language entries are encouraged, but you can submit a video in another language so long as it has English subtitles.
How can I submit my work?
How will my entry be judged?
A panel of Department of World Languages and Cultures faculty will score each video using the following rubric:
Content: Is the video of an appropriate length and subject matter? (Could we easily recreate this recipe at home and identify its cultural and historical significance?)
Originality: Does the subject matter and its treatment demonstrate an original perspective and style?
Impact: Is the video well-organized? Does it include media, rhetoric, and colorful details to draw and maintain the viewer’s attention?
Production: Do the camerawork, lighting, audio and people’s performances support the clear communication of a message – or do technical errors or limitations distract the viewer?
What about the "Student Choice" award?
All appropriate submissions will be posted to a page here on the WLRC website. The gallery will have a link to a Qualtrics survey: vote for all the videos you love! (And make sure your friends vote, too!) The video with the most popular votes wins.
In the case of a tie, the winners split the prize money.
This all sounds cool, but how can I make a video?Adobe Spark is a great platform - and it's free!
Do you have any example videos?
How long do I have to make and sbumit my video?Submission deadline is 11:59 pm on April 16.
Can I work on a video with my friends?Of course! However, one "lead producer" needs to be main contact, and we can only write a check to one person.
What if I have more questions?Contact the Director of the World Languages Resource Collection, Dr. Noah McLaughlin: firstname.lastname@example.org.
