The jury, made up of three leading industry professionals, will choose five finalists from among all the contestants. A representative of each finalist group will be invited to Bogotá with all expenses paid to participate in the TecnoTelevisión Academic Program and in the award ceremony.
The winner among the five finalists will be chosen with virtual voting between July 15 and 31, as well as physically during the first day at the TecnoTelevisión Commercial Exhibition. At the end of July 31, the winner will be announced.
The creators of the winning audiovisual piece of the TecnoTelevisión University Contest will have a profile in the magazine TV and VIDEO highlighting the audiovisual piece and the person/group making, training at the Centro Atico of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana and a television production team.
