The Fine Print
A deviation from the rules listed below may disqualify a submission from the video from consideration for judging. We reserve the right to amend the contest rules without prior notification.

Keep it legal!

Images and music you use for your video submission may be protected by copyright law, so it’s best to choose works that don’t require written permission from the copyright holder.

For historical images of Puget Sound, try searching A Sound Past, Collins Memorial Library's digital collection of images from the university archives. Creative Commons has posted a great guide to royalty-free music sources. And don’t forget to properly credit the media sources you use in your video.
