One of the three cash prize winners will be entitled to a grand prize, a free 2016 AIHce registration. The entrants will be judged by AIHce conference attendees using the conference mobile app.

"The mission of the IH Fundance Film Festival is not only to have fun, but to take the winning videos and share them with schools to educate students at the elementary, middle, high, and university levels, about the importance of industrial hygiene and to plant seeds with the hope of inspiring the next generation of IH/OH professionals. Contestants who submit will gain extra points in the judging process if the video is appropriate for educating kids about IH," according to the contest entry page.
