Sources

Your video must have closing credits. Remember that the credits are not included in the time limit for a video, but should not themselves take longer than another 60 seconds.

Your credits should be a list of all the sources of your footage, images, music, and sound effects. For this contest, your material must be copyright friendly and taken from one of the following websites:

Footage: find footage you can use (and must cite, of course) at the Internet Archive and this Vimeo channel. You can also download and use Creative Commons-licensed material from YouTube, as long as (like everything else) you provide a proper citation.

Creative Commons LogoImages: Unsplash, Pexels, Openclipart, Wikimedia Commons, Pixabay, or Flickr (MUST be Creative Commons licensed - for Flickr, we HIGHLY recommend you use search.creativecommons.org and choose the tab for Flickr, as this simplifies getting copyright-friendly search results)

Music: Bensound, ccMixter, AudionautiX.com, Incompetech.com (the material on the Incompetech site was created by Kevin MacLeod, who has kindly given permission to students to use his material as part of contests for NextVista.org) or the YouTube Audio Library

Sound Effects: extensive libraries at Freesound and Orange Free Sounds, as well as the free section of Partners In Rhyme
