Are you creative, passionate, and wanting to make a difference?
This might be your chance to have your voice heard and talents showcased. The Canadian Women’s Foundation is rolling out it’s first-ever Girl’s Voice Video Contest.
You don’t have to have technical skills or any experience. If you care about issues affecting you and other girls in your school or community, you can rock this contest.
We want you to tell us what you think about one of the following topics:
The Media – when you think about media (TV shows, video games, movies, magazines, advertisements, etc.), what is the best thing and the worst thing about it all?
Having a Mentor – what’s good about having a mentor?
Dealing with Violence – how does violence affect you – either at school, in the media, at home, or in your neighbourhood?
- Feeling Confident – what helps you to feel more confident?
The rules are simple.
Think about one of the above topics and how you are affected by it or feel about it. Think about what you want to say and the message you want to send to other girls that might see the video. Then come up with a cool and creative concept for a video. Your video should have a title, cannot exceed 4 minutes and file size of 150MB. Use any recording device to create the video. Enter your video in our contest! You can submit more than one video.
To make your video rock, just remember:
- Videos about other topics will not be accepted for the contest, so stick to the four questions asked.
- Show how girls aged 9 to 13 see the issue you have chosen.
- Make sure your video and message has a clear focus.
- Be as creative as possible. This is your time to shine!
And don’t forget to have fun.
Lastly, don’t miss the DEADLINE, which has been extended to June 03, 2014. Submit your video and the consent form online.
