The 2007 Georgia Student Media Festival

It is time for the 2007 Georgia Student Media Festival! All students and schools K-12 are encouraged to participate in this annual event.

The Georgia Student Media Festival is designed to stimulate student interest and involvement in all types of media production. This is accomplished by providing an opportunity for students to show their work to an audience and have the work critiqued by a panel of expert judges. Students will also be able to gain inspiration by viewing the work of other students represented at the festival. Project categories include, but are not limited to, 2-D and 3-D animation, electronic picture books, electronic photographic essays, sequential stills and websites.

K-12 festival activities progress through three successive levels: building, system and state. Entries must be evaluated at each level and receive a superior rating in order to proceed to the next level. Private schools are responsible for contacting the public school system in their geographic area for information on system or state level judging.

Building and system festival locations will be determined by the schools and counties. The state student media festival will be held at Georgia Public Broadcasting on April 27, 2007.

The Georgia Student Media Festival is sponsored by Georgia Public Broadcasting, Georgia Association for Instructional Technology and the Georgia Library Association.
