- Be a university student enrolled in any degree, diploma or bachelor's degree in Communication (Journalism, Audiovisual Communication and Advertising and Public Relations) at any university in the world in the current academic year (2021-2022).

The competition is not responsible for any breach of copyright, and may remove from the competition at any time works that do not comply with intellectual property law, both for the images used and the sound tracks.

- The length of the audiovisual report shall not exceed 12 minutes (credits included).

- The reports must include a title and chyrons or credits with the identification of the sources, as well as information about the technical and artistic team. Whether or not a supporting voice-over is used, the didactic, informative, social and creative value of the report will be positively valued.

- Audiovisual works may be individual or collective. In the case of belonging to a collective of authors, registration and contact with the organisation will be through a single representative of the group.

- An author may participate in the production of three audiovisual works.

- Audiovisual works will be accepted in English, Spanish or Catalan. If the original language is not English, Spanish or Catalan, the video must be subtitled in any of these three languages.

- In the case of collective works, the payment of the economic prize will be made through the representative of the group, and the possibility of splitting the payment between the different authors of the work may be studied.
