The prizes for the winning submissions are as follows:

  • 2nd prize - camera equipment to the value of £150 
  • 3rd prize - £50 Amazon voucher

"Above all we are interested in the student's ideas."

Fiona Strawbridge (UCL Information Systems), one of the competition judges, explained: "We hear about learning in virtual classrooms and virtual worlds online, but what is right for you and for UCL? What are the important things? We want UCL students to create a digital story lasting 2 to 4 minutes to help us answer one or more of these questions. We are interested in their ability to engage and persuade through creative use of electronic media but above all we are interested in the student's ideas."

The competition is open to all UCL students. Participants can enter as an individual or as a group. For more information, competition rules, help and support, please visit the Digital Story Competition Moodle space at the link below.

The deadline for submissions is noon on Monday 28 November.
