OK all you videographers and creative types out there in gay Atlanta. Here’s your chance to be heard over the cacophony of voices on the ins and outs of LGBT rights. The Elimination of Prejudice Foundation wants your web video in their 2012 contest.
You’ve got opinions, and you’ve got imagination. Rather than simply talking amongst ourselves, help get the word out to a wider audience and promote a better understanding between all people to move toward permanent, positive change of hearts and minds outside our little circle.
Write, shoot and submit your take on LGBT prejudice, and you could win one of several prizes, including a $2,500 grand prize. Watch the video below for encouragement, and check out what the foundation has to say:
Be imaginative! Be vocal! Be rewarded for your creative contribution to the Eliminate Prejudice Video Contest. Submit your three-minute video on how LGBT prejudice relates to events in society or in your own life today to this website by 11:59 p.m. EST on April 4, 2012 for your chance to win!
You might analyze events like marriage equality, Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT), homophobia, transphobia, the role of LGBT in American society and politics today or possibly address how LGBT prejudices have affected your life or those around you.
A few ground rules: Your video should be three minutes or less, in English, have a “’PG’ sensitivity” and not include copyrighted footage like TV or ad clips without permission from the rightful owner. And please child, don’t rant. Visit the foundation online to see last year’s winner on anti-Semitism and for full contest rules.
