Congratulatory video and photo submissions

Submissions are now opened

Getting ready to graduate this spring? We invite you to participate and submit your own photos and congratulatory video messages!

Your submissions will be used in our Convocation 2024 videos that will play at the Convocation ceremonies happening on June 24, 25, and 26. The purpose of the videos is to celebrate your journey at NAIT and to congratulate your fellow graduates.


Ways to participate

There are two ways you can participate. 

  1. Self submissions:

    • Submit photos of yourself or with friends.​​​

    • Submit a video of yourself or with friends answering the video prompts found below.

  2. In-person:

    • Our video team will be on-campus on May 17 and May 24 from 10:00AM - 2:00PM to film congratulatory video messages in-person. Come as a big group, just yourself or a pair, whatever works for you.

Tips for filming

Here are some filming tips to help you submit high quality videos: 

  1. Make sure it looks good 
    • Use a tri-pod, or place your recording device on a sturdy surface such as on top of a book stack or a shelf.
    • Film in a well-lit place.
    • Make sure you're centred in the frame.
    • Try to get the camera as near to eye level as you can (we want to avoid low-angle shots as much as possible).
  2. Make sure it sounds good
    • Film your video in or near a silent environment.
    • Film multiple takes if you need to get it right. 
    • Playback your video and make sure that your sound input is good. 
  3. Don't worrry about editing
    • You don't need to make edits or cut down your video. The video team will make edits if neccessary.
  4. Have fun!
    • This is the most important tip! Make sure you have fun filming and let your personality shine through.
    • This will be a celebratory, upbeat video, so we encourage you to film with excitement and enthusiasm!
