In 2017, Media Arts Center San Diego was chosen by the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) to take reign of its annual student film competition, known as the Innovative Video in Education (iVIE) Awards. Started in 2001 to encourage and reward teachers who utilize video as a project-based learning tool in their classrooms, iVIE has grown into a major student video competition attracting hundreds of students each year from around the county. Hundreds of students each year use film and visual literacy to demonstrate their understanding of classroom concepts. In 2017, SDCOE transferred the iVIE Awards to Media Arts Center San Diego. This year’s 18th Annual iVIE Awards & Film Celebration will take place on [UPDATED] June 1, 2019. Deadline for submissions is April 15, 2019.
