 Now Accepting Submissions for the 2022 iVIE Awards & Student Film Festival

​Media Arts Center San Diego is excited to announce the 21st Innovative Video in Education (iVIE) Awards & Student Film Festival, presented by SDG&E.

iVIE is a K-12 student video competition and festival conceived to encourage and reward teachers and students who recognize the power of video as a creative and educational tool. The festival is scheduled for an in-person edition on Saturday, June 4, 2022.

There are many categories that you can submit your student work to (i.e., news stories, PSAs, etc.). Additionally, there are several new submission categories: an animation section for short narratives, a music-centric category, and a call to action to use Tik Tok for good.

#LOVELECTRIC is back for a second year, with SDG&E as the presenting sponsor. Students from all age groups are invited to submit a video exploring the world of Electric Vehicles and all the reasons to #LOVELECTRIC.

The call for entries deadline is April 11, 2022. There is a $1 entry fee per film. Email for more information.

Since 2001, iVIE has grown into a major San Diego County-wide student video competition. On average each year, the festival receives more than 500 video submissions from 120 teachers, 73 schools, 23 districts, and a handful of private schools serving approximately 3,500 students. Submitted videos are judged by media professionals and educators curated by Media Arts Center San Diego (organizer of the 29th Annual San Diego Latino Film Festival and other programming).
