 video Submissions

We want to hear from as many of you as we can about WHY/WHEN/HOW Samford became a special place for you.


For every submission you send in, we will enter your name into a drawing to receive a $300 Samford Bookstore gift card. 


Before you submit a video, here are a few things you should know:

1. This campaign will feature videos shot by Samford students, alumni and parents. This video is going to have a social media feel, so think of Instagram Stories. 

2. We want to see your face in the shoot it like a selfie.

3. Be creative...tell us a story!

4. Keep what you say short and to the point. 20 seconds max per submission. 

5. Submit as many times as you want. 

6. MAKE SURE your camera is rolling before you start talking, and let it keep rolling for a few seconds after you finish...we don't want you to get cut off. 

7. Hold your phone horizontally (NOT vertically). 


Here are some examples of videos that have already been submitted that work great.

See how easy it is?
