“Good artists copy, great artists STEAL” may have been the mantra of Picasso, but doing so these days makes you guilty of plagiarism. It’s ok though, because you’re not alone. The fact is, people everywhere steal from others’ work all the time and ProjectEd wants to create awareness with their “Don’t Plagiarize Me, Bro!” video contest. Helping people understand the true meaning of this word might just help unintentional “borrowings” from happening.

To enter, create a 90 second or less video that defines “Plagiarism.” The definition can be found via the contest page below and some samples include:

Examples of plagiarism, provided by www.plagiarism.org:

  • Turning in someone else’s work as your own
  • Copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit
  • Failing to put a quotation in quotation marks
  • Giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation
  • Changing words by copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit
  • Copying so many words or ideas from source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not

The word, its part of speech, definition and samples used in a sentence must be included as text over your video. ProjectED is also going to be giving away some hefty cash prizes for this contest. The 1st place winner from a youth and adult category will each take home $1,000. A single runner-up will also be chosen to also receive $200. Your videos will be judged on the following:

  • Educational merit and accuracy: Your video achieves the educational goals presented in the contest brief and viewers learn intended material from your video.
  • Creativity and engagement: Your video presents educational content in a memorable way; viewers are compelled to watch the video to completion. Does your video convey its message in an artistic, creative and innovative way?
  • Quality of video production: Your video has high resolution and audio quality, effectively employs visual aesthetics and cinematography and demonstrates production skills.
