CAIR: TWO $5,000 PRIZES TO BE AWARDED FOR 'LET THE CONVERSATION BEGIN' DIGITAL VIDEOS
WASHINGTON, D.C. - A national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group recently announced an online digital video contest designed to help promote mutual understanding between Muslims and people of other faiths in America and worldwide.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations said it will offer two $5,000 prizes for videos up to one minute long that are the most effective in promoting interfaith understanding and communicating the contest theme of "Let the Conversation Begin."
The videos are limited to one minute in length because they may be used as television public service announcements.
Video submissions will be accepted until April 15. Audio (if any) must be in English or with English sub-titles, and the videos must be submitted in .avi, .mov, or .mpg using .zip format.
All CAIR video contest submissions will be evaluated for originality and creativity, production quality and effectiveness in promoting mutual understanding. Winners will have their videos posted on www.YouTube.com and on www.cair.com.
