Racism. Stop It! Video Competition

The Racism. Stop It! National Video Competition is a contest which provides the opportunity for young adults between the ages of 18 and 20, to submit short videos (45 to 60 seconds) on their thoughts about eliminating racism. This initiative reaches thousands of youth and educators from across the country every year and includes the participation of many significant partners such as, the National Film Board of Canada, Panasonic Canada Inc., MuchMusic and VRAK.TV.

Ten winning videos will be chosen to be broadcast on partners' networks, reaching a majority of Canadians. The winners will receive, amongst other prizes, an all expenses paid trip to Canadas Capital Region where they will participate in an awards ceremony hosted by the Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multiculturalism in March 2010.

There will also be a Public Choice Award winning video. During the month of February 2010, the general public will be able to have their say by voting for their favorite video on the March 21 Youtube page (www.youtube.com/march21mars). The video receiving the most votes will be awarded this prestigious Public Choice Award.

Note that this year's deadline for submissions is Friday, January 15, 2010.
