Showcase Rules and Guidelines

All entries must be submitted by May 2, 2022. 

The Showcase must limit entries to one entry per person and one entry per group or family.  Please note that it will be allowed for the same person to submit an entry both as an individual and as a member of a group or family.

If you are submitting a video, we recommend that it should be no longer than 3 minutes in length, however, videos up to 8 minutes maximum will be allowed.    

If the production quality of your project makes it very difficult for the viewer to see or hear what you have produced, your project will not be included in the Showcase.

Children and their families will be viewing the Showcase. Projects including language and imagery that would not be considered acceptable in school settings and/or in families involving young children will not be included.

Make certain that you have received permission from all the people you have chosen to appear in the photograph or video that you are submitting to the Showcase.  Also if the project you are submitting contains sensitive and private information about someone you know, be careful to avoid making it possible to recognize this person by for instance using fictional names and not providing details that could allow people to identify him or her.

For reasons of security, we provide only a few pieces of general information about each of the children, youth or families represented in the Showcase. All participants will be given options as to type of information they choose to have included with their projects. The information that is included (name, city/town/village, etc.) will be decided by you.  All other information on our entry form (such as email)  beyond that which you choose to release will be seen only by Showcase staff members and will not be shared with other entities outside the Showcase.

All children and youth who submitted their entries to the International Expressions of Kindness: Multimedia Showcase will receive a Certificate of Recognition.
