Students may enter the film awards competition by submitting an original film creation of no more than 40 minutes in length. The film categories include animation, documentary and narrative. All entries will be judged by The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on the basis of resourcefulness, originality, entertainment, and production quality.

Awards include Gold, Silver, and Bronze Medal cash awards. In addition, winners will attend the Student Academy Awards Ceremony in Beverly Hills, California where awards will be presented.

The Student Academy Awards (SAA) was established by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1972 to award and encourage excellent film making among college students. Many past SAA winners have been successful in film making careers and received 46 Oscar nominations and either won or shared a total of eight awards.
