StudentCam 2017 - Winners

C-SPAN is pleased to announce the 150 prize winning documentaries in C-SPAN's 2017 StudentCam competition. After much deliberation and multiple rounds of judging, the following documentaries have been selected as this year's award winning entries.

 

This year we received 2,903 films from over 5,600 students - the most entries in the thirteen years of the competition. Entries came from 46 states, as well as Washington DC, England, Germany, Singapore and Taiwan.

 

Prize winning filmmakers and teachers will be contacted via email with more information regarding their win. C-SPAN television network will air each of the second prize, first prize, and grand prize winning documentaries at 6:50am ET during the month of April. See below for the documentary air-dates of the top 21.

 

We would also like to recognize the efforts of every participant for the extraordinary amount of research and time spent filming and editing your documentaries. We offer our sincere thanks to all involved and certainly understand that creating a documentary is no easy task. Many of you invested weeks or months in planning, researching, filming, and editing your work. You are to be commended for your outstanding efforts and even if you did not win one of the 150 prizes listed below, please be on the lookout later this spring for a small gift as a token of our appreciation. Thank you for making this our most fiercely competitive competition yet and we hope those of you with remaining eligibility will consider participating in StudentCam 2018, launching at the beginning of the new school year.

 

Congratulations to all!
