Sources and Citations: Service via Video Project
Your video must have closing credits. Remember that the credits are not included in the time limit for the instructional video, but should not themselves take longer than another 60 seconds.
Your credits should be a list of all the sources of your images, audio, and sound effects. For this contest, your material must be copyright friendly and taken from one of the following websites:
Music: Jamendo.com, ccMixter, Incompetech.com (the material on the Incompetech site was created by Kevin MacLeod, who has kindly given permission to students to use his material as part of contests for NextVista.org) or the YouTube Audio Library
Images: Wellcome Images, Wikimedia Commons, Fotopedia, Pixabay, or Flickr (MUST be Creative Commons licensed - for Fotopedia or Flickr, we HIGHLY recommend you use search.creativecommons.org and choose the tab for Flickr, as this simplifies getting copyright-friendly search results)
Footage: find footage you can use (and must cite, of course) at Free Video Footage, the Internet Archive, and this Vimeo channel. You can also download and use Creative Commons-licensed material from YouTube, as long as (like everything else) you provide a proper citation.
Your closing credits should be a list of all the sources of your images, audio, and sound effects. These sample citations should help you decide how to plan your credits, an essential part of any successful video.
Music: List the name of the piece, the artist, and the site from which it was downloaded. If the piece is one you created or recorded yourself, you must also provide a citation listing the software you used to create it. Follow these examples:

by Your Name
created in Garage Band
from the WeVideo music library
Sound Effects: List the name of the effect, artist, and site from which it was downloaded. If the effect is one you created or recorded yourself, you must also provide a citation listing the software you used to create it. Follow these examples for citing what you use:

Images: List the name of the image, the name of the person who uploaded it, and the site. Note that the reason for going through the Creative Commons page is to insure that what you use will be copyright-friendly. If the image is one you took or created yourself, you must also provide a citation listing the date you created it. Follow these examples:
