Please Don't Dog Ear
Sometimes a love or passion for something is so great we create new words to describe it. Many folks feel that passionately about reading. Our friends over at Epic Reads put together a whole glossary full of fun terms that convey an obsession with reading.
For this contest we teamed up with the Epic Reads crew to turn five book-nerd terms into short and fun videos that de-mystify the love of reading!
Choose one of the following five words. Take a close look at the definition in the brief to craft a story that conveys the word’s definition. Then, make a video, 30 seconds or less, that effectively and creatively teaches the meaning of the word you chose. Are you up to the challenge?
For this challenge, choose one of these five terms: binge-read, bookshelfie, book hoarder, book hangover, and dog ear.
Your video must:

Meet all official rules and requirements.
Videos will be evaluated based on the following criteria, weighed equally:
In the event of a tie, the tie will be broken on the basis of the tied entrants’ scores in the “Educational merit and accuracy” criteria.
Prizes per contest vary. In most cases, a grand prize will be awarded to one video in the ‘Youth’ category and one in the ‘Adult’ category. All entries are categorized by age of the submitter. Submitters under the age of 18 are placed into the ‘Youth’ category and submitters 18 years or older are placed in the ‘Adult’ category. All prizes with the exception of the 'Viewer's Choice' award are chose by a panel of judges. In the case of winners under the age of 18, prizes will be awarded to a legal parent or guardian. Rules for each contest explain how and when we will notify you and the date the prizes will be announced. Prizes are awarded at Amplify’s discretion and are subject to the applicable district and school policies. Prizes for teachers may be awarded via DonorChoose.org.
In this contest we will be offering one youth grand prize, one adult grand prize, two finalist prizes, one viewer’s choice, and two honorable mention prizes. All prizes amounts are in USD where applicable.
