New this year, we also invite videos of up to 90 seconds on the topic of “What instrumentation development means for your field.”
Submit videos here by January 22, 2020 for inclusion in the contest.  More information on how to take and submit videos before filling out the form is below.
Guidelines for making the video
  1. The files must be sent in  .mov, .mp4, or .m4v.  Either 1920x1080 or 1280x720.
  2. If using a smartphone, please record with the phone horizontally, not vertical.
  3. For best audio, get the microphone/phone as close as possible to any person speaking.    Good sound happens when the mic is within 1-2 feet of the person speaking.
  4. Please do not use copyrighted music for the recording, unless you own the copyright (if so, please provide documentation with your submission).
