Competitors - who range from semi-professionals to enthusiastic amateurs - have 24 hours to make their film, with an additional 12 hours allowed for editing. There are three categories of prizes: Best Video, Best Video edited-in-camera, and Video showing Dumfries & Galloway in an unusual or Inspirational Way.
Twenty six teams entered the 2002 Galloway Video Challenge, the largest ever number taking part, with sixteen teams coming from outside the region. The Screen Commission dealt with over 100 general enquiries about the event. As well as local coverage in the local press and radio, there was for the first time an item on Border Television about Video Challenge, showing clips of competitors' films.
A selection of videos entered in the competition were screened at the Robert Burns Centre Film Theatre, Dumfries."
