  2. teaches how to do something in photogrammetry or remote sensing (e.g. “this is how you accurately apply NDVI to an image”)

3. provides some insight into photogrammetry and/or remote sensing that could be artistic or scientific in nature (feel free to use a soundtrack if you’d like but avoid copyrighted material)

Some caveats:

+ No advertising (e.g. “This is why I always use [commercial software name] to do my work because it’s awesome and only costs $10k…contact your local representative at…”)
+ Stay away from any affiliations if possible (e.g. “We at [name of institution or company] do this…”). Keep it agnostic to organization and just science and engineering content and no copyrighted or proprietary content.
+ Avoid crude language and inappropriate stuff. Please keep it clean.
+ Submitted videos will be considered for posting to regional/national ASPRS websites and attributed to the prize winner(s). So any content in them cannot be proprietary or subject to licensing or payment for use.

Take note: 

+ The video you make can be of any quality; you could do the video from your cellphone if you’d like.  Judging is mostly on creativity, subject matter, and scientific accuracy.
+ Judging will be done by a collection of Mid-south regional leadership.
