This year all NHD China documentaries will be submitted through Youtube.com. There is a three-step process to successfully submit your video for judging. All videos must be submitted by 7pm, Tuesday, February 12th, 2019

Step 1: Obtain access to a VPN if you are in mainland China and create a Youtube channel.

Step 2: Upload your video in the highest resolution possible to Youtube. Uploading high quality videos can take a long time, so we recommend that you use a good VPN and a strong internet connection for the upload. Students who are located in Shanghai are welcome to use Concordia International School’s campus wifi and VPN if this makes the process easier. Please email mikekennedy@concordiashanghai.org to arrange for a time to upload.

Step 3: Once the upload is complete, you will receive a url for your video. Email the url of your documentary with the title of your project and the names of all group members to nhdasia@concordiashanghai.org. This step is very important as the url’s will be distributed to judges in order to view your completed work.

If you have any questions about this process, please email nhdasia@concordiashanghai.org and we will help you get your project submitted! Good luck!
