Submissions should focus on multimedia creations that portray what the absence of academic integrity could look like in order to emphasize why it is critical in education and society as a whole.

 


CONTEST JUDGING

 

A panel of ICAI and Academic Integrity Seminar staff, will determine the best videos and posters based on the descriptions (above) as well as these questions:

 

• Creativity and adherence to the topic - does the submission adequately address integrity in a logical and coherent (and perhaps humorous) manner?

• Technical competency - is the submission designed with high quality, does it pay close attention to detail, and is it something you would   be proud to call your own work?

• Does it meet the length and format requirements for its appropriate category? Is it likely to appeal to a student audience?

 

Decisions of the judges will be considered final and not subject to appeal. ICAI reserves the right to limit awarding of prizes if entries to not appropriately meet the criteria. $2,500 PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED TO THE TWO BEST ENTRIES REGARDLESS OF WHICH FORMAT IS CHOSEN FOR YOUR ENTRY!
