Interfaith Outreach Group Launches Video Contest
InterfaithFamily.com, a non-profit that provides resources and services for interfaith families exploring Jewish life, has launched its first-ever video contest, with prizes totaling more than $5,000.
InterfaithFamily.com is looking for a wide variety of videos, including personal testimonials, wedding videos, cartoons, music videos, parodies and more--anything that is educational, inspiring, moving, humorous or entertaining about interfaith family life.
"Our roots are grass roots," explained Edmund Case, president of InterfaithFamily.com. "Our articles are written by our readers, people in interfaith relationships. Given the power and popularity of video on the web, our contest provides another way for those from interfaith families to express themselves and share their stories and insights with others like them."
There are three categories of competition: general competition, wedding and most-viewed.
In the general competition, prizes are $2,500 for first place, $1,000 for second place, $500 for third place and $100 for each of five honorable mentions. In the wedding videos competition, prizes are $500 for first place and $250 for second place. In the most-viewed competition, the submitter of the video that receives the most views will win $250. Entrants and videos are eligible to win one judged prize only.
A panel of judges, including Tiffany Shlain, director of "The Tribe," and Joey Kurtzman, senior editor of Jewcy, will determine the winners based on the criteria of creativity, originality, quality and understanding of the issues faced by interfaith families.
The contest runs through April 30, and approved videos will be added to the site as they are submitted. Winners will be announced June 3, 2008.
