Social Media Short Award
This award is for the best film that has been made specifically for viewing on social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube. The winning entry will be technically innovative and understand its medium, creatively telling a story and sharing information in a short amount of time, while showcasing research in the arts and humanities in an accessible way.
