Application for the 2018 Youth Media Awards

Youth Media Awards entries for 2018 closed on August 15. Finalists will be notified by the end of September.

WHYY is honoring the best young video producers in PA, NJ, and DE with the 2018 WHYY Youth Media Awards.

WHYY is accepting videos in four categories: news report, documentary, narrative and open. Students throughout the Delaware Valley in grades 6 through 12 are invited to submit videos to the competition by August 15. Eligible submissions must have been created by students living in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Delaware during the creation of the video.

Videos must be less than 7 min. in duration and may be produced by individuals or groups, but must be produced entirely by youth in grades 6-12 during the video's production. The majority of work done on the submitted video must have occurred between August 1, 2017 and July 31, 2018. All media used in the video must be owned by the students, used with permission, or used in a manner consistent with the fair use guidelines.
