Not sure where to begin?
If the $500 first prize isn't incentive enough, here's some short film examples to get you in the AI frame of mind...
Made by students, for students: short film examples
AI in Canada: The following films by the University of Alberta illustrate information about AI.
Student examples: These films are longer than the USC film Festival criteria – but they are creative examples of AI situations.
These films were produced by students for the APFEI Student video competition - Asia Pacific forum on Educational Integrity (APEI)
“APEI is a multi-institutional, cross-disciplinary and non-profit organisation that fosters research and collaboration on issues relating to educational and academic integrity”.

FAQs - and the list will grow
Can anyone enter?
Only students at USC can enter the contest.
How long is the video?
Videos must be between 1-2 minutes. This is longer than a commercial and enough time to get your point across.
Do I have to use specialised equipment?
No - your phone and basic film editing software should do the trick.
How many people can be in a team?
As many or as few as you can handle. The prize money is awarded to the selected film regardless of the number of students on a team.
What is academic integrity?
A great question! There is a lot of information and resources available on Blackboard and the USC website (see links below).
Note: We will be adding resources and links to this page to inspire you, so check in again!
