Check out to screen the winning entries in the 2009 Homewood Student Video Competition. This first annual Homewood-wide contest drew two- to three-minute videos based on themes of "A Day in the Life," "My Johns Hopkins," and "Discovery."

Some entries came as a result of an Intersession class offered by the Digital Media Center that combined video production and editing techniques, while others were created by students who just wanted to tell their own stories (individually and in groups). With cash prizes of $500, $300, and $200 on the line, students dedicated themselves to a top-quality finished product, which the schools of Arts and Sciences and Engineering will ultimately use to help in promotion efforts.

The contest's panel of judges included Dean of Student Life Susan Boswell; Director of University Marketing Chris Cullen; Director of Graduate Admissions Anna De Cheke Qualls; Roger Faxon '71, chairman and CEO of EMI Music Publishing; and Richard Chisolm, Emmy Award-winning cinematographer and director of photography for ABC's Hopkins 24/7.

Winning videos will be posted on departmental and school websites, YouTube, and eventually on iTunesU.
