Broadcast Challenges Five tips for creating a successful submission 1. Make sure that all aspects of the submission have been created by the students and do not include any identifiable product or product logo. 2. Do not use real names of students and make sure there are no more than 2 identifiers for students appearing in the Broadcast submission. Remember: a student's image, their first name and their school name count as 3 identifiers. 3. Check the sound recording level (some Broadcast News submissions would have been enhanced by better sound quality). Try to record the submission in as quiet a location as possible. 4. Check the background lighting. If people’s faces are to be seen, avoid having them standing in front of a strong light source such as a window as this makes their features difficult to see. 5. Be sure that the Creative Statement includes signed permissions from all individuals/team members, any person appearing in, or contributing to the production of the broadcast. Please note: only submissions that comply with all the Terms and Conditions of the Broadcast Challenges will be approved for uploading to the Broadcast Newsroom.
