Any undergraduate student enrolled at Princeton during academic year 2018-19 is invited to submit an entry no later than Friday, 1 March 2019 at https://uchv.princeton.edu/smp.
Although initially we thought there would be no theme, we have decided that in 2018-19, the jury will consider digital videos (or films transferred to digital form) that bear in any way on the theme of Hope and Despair.
If you have any questions or concerns (particularly in light of this new theme) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
