The competition is open to Transition Year students in all schools in the Republic of Ireland.
Entries are made by teams of up to six students. All team members must be enrolled in the same school.
A school may enter as many teams as they wish. However, each student should be part of only one team, and each team may submit one video entry only.
Videos entered should be produced by the Transition Year students on the team, with guidance from teachers as appropriate. Professional or external film-making assistance is not permitted.
UCD are not liable for any film-making costs associated with producing competition entries.
Entries must uphold copyright and intellectual property rights in all respects. Students and teachers are responsible for ensuring that copyright issues have been addressed and that any material included in the video (e.g. music, images, other media) is free from copyright infringement.
Videos should be no more than 4 minutes long. Videos exceeding this duration will be disqualified.
Videos should be hosted on Youtube or another video hosting website. Video files cannot be accepted via email or direct link. If hosting on YouTube, please make your video unlisted (see how).
UCD is not responsible for the content of any video entered into the competition, and the video entries should not be construed as representing UCD’s opinions or standpoints.
Entries must be made via the UCD History and Health Competition website (historyandhealth.ucd.ie) on or before 5pm on Thursday 1st March, 2018.
Entering the competition grants UCD permission to use or display any video entries submitted, online or at other events.
Informed, parental consent for all team members and also for any other students / other minors appearing in the video must be obtained by school.
Parents should be made aware of the competition structure, conditions of use of the video, and of the fact that video entries via Youtube may be viewed or shared by third parties.
