Feb. 14--Pellissippi State Community College is hosting a video contest for students in middle and high school and college, with the awards including a scholarship.

"Frame x Frame" is a free audio-video competition open to local students, with the theme being "Tell Us a Story."

"This is an opportunity for students to put together a short audio and visual media production that tests their creativity and introduces them to industry professionals," said Katie Lovette, an instructor in engineering and media technologies who helped plan the event. "These films are 'shorts,' presentations of a moment in time. They can be animated, video or even pictures set to music."

Middle school and high school entries should be 2-5 minutes long. College division entries can be 2-10 minutes. Multiple entries are allowed.

Entries must be saved as a digital file on a flash drive, CD/DVD data disc, or external hard drive. The format for each entry should be in standard definition.

Entries are to be brought in person to the lobby of the Bagwell Center for Media and Art on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road.

The due date for entries is March 7. Entries are judged in age categories. The judges are video production industry professionals who will critique and give feedback for each entry.

Screening for the entries will take place March 17-26 at a "Frame x Frame" exhibit in the Bagwell Gallery, with the winners being announced at the same place on March 19. The gallery's hours are 10 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.
