DOCUMENTARY

The sequence can be about travel, history, natural history, sport, an event, a person or persons, nature or any subject or story that pertains to factual information. The sequence must contain text and/or narration– plus music and sound effects if desired. No video allowed.

POETRY & SONG

The sequence will portray any subject or story using a poem and/or song. The sequence cannot be accompanied by music alone, but must contain narration and/or text for poetry-based sequences, and song vocals and/or text for song-based sequences. Music and/or sound effects may also be applied. No video allowed.

PHOTO HARMONY

The challenge lies in the production and visual progression of images linked to sound. It is not a requirement to have a story with a specific beginning, middle and end, but the production should be constructed so that images dissolve harmoniously in terms of colour or tone and graphic design. No narration, video or text (except in the title slide and credits at the end), is allowed.

THEME

The sequence will portray any subject, story or theme other than defined in the Documentary, Photo Harmony, or Poetry and Song categories. The sequence may contain any combination of music, sound effects, text and/or narration. No video allowed.  

FUSION

The sequence will portray any subject, story or theme through the use of still images and video. The video content must not be more than 20% of the duration of the whole sequence. Any combination of text, narration, music and sound effects may be used.
