StudentCam 2017 Fan Favorite - Vote For Your Favorite Documentary

The 150 winning entries in C-SPAN's 2017 StudentCam competition are in the process of being finalized, but as a preview, we are sharing 10 of the top videos from each of the 4 prize divisions in this year's competition (as determined by C-SPAN's judges). We are asking you to view each of these ten videos and cast your vote for your favorite documentary. You may vote for your favorite video once every 24 hours. Voting is blind (meaning no vote tally will be displayed) and the order of video appearance randomizes every time the page is refreshed. Voting is also based on your IP address. If you have zero votes to cast, then someone on your IP address has already cast a vote for one of the videos. You may vote for your favorite video once daily between Monday, February 27 and Friday, March 3.

Your vote will not determine the placement of the Grand, First, or Second Prize winning entries, but the documentary that receives the most number of votes will receive a secondary cash prize of $500 and will be recognized as the 2017 "Fan Favorite."

Please note that all of the 150 main StudentCam prizes awarded by C-SPAN judges will be decided independently of your vote.

To view the complete list of 150 winning documentaries, as well as the winner of this year's "Fan Favorite" award, log-on to on Wednesday, March 8 at 8am ET.
