Center for Freedom & Prosperity Foundation’s
2011 Free Market Video Contest
Deadline: December 15, 2011
The Center for Freedom and Prosperity Foundation (CF&P) is holding its 2nd annual free market video contest. If you think you can explain economic concepts in easy-to-understand terms, then take a shot at the $1,000 grand prize.
Here are the rules for the contest:
- Entries should illustrate the importance of free-markets, targeting the 15-25 market. They can deal with big-picture concepts, or address specific issues.
- Entries must be less than 5 minutes in length, with 3 minutes or less being ideal.
- The videos are for mass education, and should thus avoid anything overly risqué.
- Maximum two video submissions per entrant (any individual or group).
- Videos should not have received prior funding.
- CF&P maintains the right to publish and promote all contest entries, with appropriate attribution.
After the contest ends, the Center’s judges will select the top three videos. Winners will be announced February 1, 2012. Previous judges included George Mason University economics professor, columnist, radio talk show host and author, Dr. Walter E. Williams; Dan Mitchell of the Cato Institute; Richard Rahn of the Institute for Global Economic Growth; and Andrew Quinlan of the Center for Freedom and Prosperity.
First prize: $1,000
Second prize: $500
Third prize: $250
There may be up to an additional five videos recognized with $100 Honorable Mention prizes.
To submit an entry, please upload the video to YouTube and send the link to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name, or that of each member of the group, and affiliation (if relevant).
