Deepfake Education Competition

The CITRIS Policy Lab has partnered with the Silicon Valley Leadership Group to launch the "Deepfake Education Competition. As deepfakes become easier to produce and more convincing, educating the public becomes critical. The competition encourages high school, undergrad, and grad students to produce engaging video content to help educate the public on the threat of deepfakes. Winners will receive awards up to $2,500 and will be featured through CITRIS media channels and broadly in the Silicon Valley community through Silicon Valley Leadership Group media channels, and may be featured during the Silicon Valley Leadership Group’s Oct. 30th flagship event with more than 1,000 industry and public sector leaders.
