Welcome to the Middle School Media Festival. The Festival will take place on Tuesday, May 28, 2019 from noon–2:30
at The Bush School. Entries are due on May 3rd
(see details, below).
Bush is pleased to host the Middle School Media Festival, open to middle school students from all over the northwest region. Since 2011, the Festival has brought together middle school students as creative colleagues to support and celebrate each others' work at an annual screening and gallery in the spring.
During the school year, any individual or team of students can enter completed work for adjudication by a panel of qualified adults and upper school students. Media should be viewable online, and can be password protected. (Please contact us if this is unworkable for you.)
Entries might be part of a class assignment, an extracurricular activity, or simply media made for fun. Each entry needs to list an adult sponsor, often a teacher or parent. Most successful entries are short
, usually less than 3 minutes
Entries can be media creations of many kinds. These might include:
- Computer art
- Self-advancing slideshows
- Cloud-based creations
We will do our best to accommodate computer programs (such as Scratch creations or other coding), but this is not the main focus of the Festival.
The Festival offers a few different awards for participants:
- Audience Awards and Honorable Mentions — from student votes
- Teacher's Choice Award — from an attending (anonymous) teacher to a different school's entry
- Judge's Choice Award — one that especially stood out to panel judges
Please see below for instructions on entering media. We look forward to seeing your work!
