Video Recommendations

We have compiled the following recommendations to let you in on what we are looking for.

  • Time limit: 30–60 seconds. Keep it short but sweet, and to the point.
  • Consider the target audience–these ads are to introduce undergraduate and high school students to the field.
  • Use clear, legible fonts and colors (avoid the “handwriting” or “neon” font on TikTok).
  • Avoid using too many filters and effects.
  • Consider contrast (ex. don’t use a green font color with a red background).
  • Take your time in each frame, audience should be able to read the text or hear the statement on each frame before the next.
  • Be aware of video surroundings and backgrounds used when recording.
  • Take advantage of trending sounds, songs, or content such as a popular dance or movements.
  • Don’t use explicit sounds, songs, or content. Submissions using any will not be considered.
  • Most importantly, have fun and be creative!
