The Illinois Humanities Council, with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, is sponsoring a nationwide challenge called Looking@Democracy.
The Looking@Democracy challenge is offering a total of $100,000 in prize money for short, provocative media submissions designed to spark a national conversation about how we can all come together to strengthen American democracy. Submissions will be accepted beginning February 4th, 2013. The deadline is April 16, 2013. Here’s how the competition works:
Create and send a short digital media content that either:
(a) Tells a story about why government is important to our lives, or
(b) Tells how we might together strengthen American democracy.
Your submission can come in many formats such as short videos, audio clips, animation, music videos, public service announcements, infographics, graphic art, even Facebook and iPhone apps. They all just need to be digital so they can be shared electronically– the rest is up to YOU!
