Upcoming Video Contests

Hi DMAA students and future DMAA students. Many students often sit around and wait until they get class assignments to do any creative work. That is a silly idea. If you want to learn and improve, you should always be working and thinking about your craft. Here are some PSA / Video contests that might inspire you. Many of these have significant amounts of prize money available for the winners. Remember, you can always check out DMAA equipment to work on these projects if it is available. Good luck.
