The Facts

Enter up to three (3) screencast videos. Videos will be assigned a category based on the information you provide (so please be as detailed as possible!). Categories are: Education (videos with a focus on teaching and/or schools, at any level); Tutorial and Training (videos with a focus on training or tutorial content); Sales and Marketing (videos made to sell or persuade); and Wildcard (videos that don’t fit in the previous categories).

We will choose four (4) finalists for each category, all of which will be eligible for a finalist prize. Those videos will then be passed to a panel of celebrity judges for scoring and posted publicly for a popular vote. The judges’ picks will each win an additional category prize…and the popular pick will win People’s Choice!

    Keep up the fantastic software and great ideas such as Screencastcamp and ScreenChamp Awards. This is what helps make TechSmith such a good company, but moreso, kudos goes out to the sooooo many employees that quickly help us “users” with our problems, ideas, and new concepts.

    Good Day Everyone! I made the video on the 5 Love Languages at

    My purpose is actually 2-fold, (1) I want to spread the love languages and make the world a better place to live and (2) have the equipment to create more video lectures for my school.

    I’m a computer science and video game development teacher at Philippine Science High School. I hope you learned something new from my video!
