Instructions for entries:
Record a 2-minute video describing your story as a medical miracle. Treat this recording as your final submission. You may want to run through a rehearsal first.
Be sure you begin your video by introducing yourself and saying where you’re from. If you’re unsure where to start after that, begin by finishing the statement, “I want to be a [ type of doctor/medical scientist ] because …”
Select a location in your home that will be private while you record and has a plain or tidy background. Remember: eliminate all background noise and move away from any windows or glares in the background.
Speak into the lens of the camera. Position yourself inside the frame of the camera. Make sure that the top of your head is below the top of the frame and the top of your shoulders are visible. Remember: this should be a chest-up shot. Here’s a good reference:
Make sure the camera is pointing straight on to your face – not positioned under your face and pointing upward, or above your face and pointing downward.
If you are recording on a phone, be sure to record horizontally, not vertically.
Present yourself well. Please wear a button-down shirt, collared shirt, or other business casual attire. Please, no sweatshirts or athletic wear.
