- Participants are required to make videos pertaining to subjects studied in high school.
- Multiple video submissions per participant are allowed, and are welcome.
- Although the syllabus is derived from high school material, participants are strongly encouraged to delve deeper into the topics in their videos and talk about interesting related ideas.
- Submissions will be graded on originality and novelty (of the topic, format and approach), lucidity, depth of the content, audio-visual appeal, coherence, and some more rubrics.
- Selected participants will be invited to attend the eventful on-campus finals, wherein they will interact (in groups) with a committee of IISc professors and representatives from event partners to spend their time at the fest working on making preliminary video content for the (possibly college-level, though with sufficient provision of resources) topics assigned to their group.
- The judgement will be based in the participant's performance in the team-based creation round as well as the intermittent events, to pick a winner as well as a winning team.
- Technically charged group discussions before the groups are formed for each topic, as an ideation round where finalists will be closely evaluated for their contributions
- In the form of "flash talks", wherein participants will get about 2 hours to read up on and present for about 10-15 minutes a part of their topic.

- If you plan to send us a video in the future, sign up ASAP with your details, subjects of interest and tentative topic/ideas so that we can make arrangements for the volume of entries, as well as check for significant overlap (there is a heavy emphasis on originality).
- If possible, briefly describe your intended approach and try to highlight what will be unique about it. This will help us keep a tab on your submission when it comes. Do note, this is absolutely optional.
