Calling All College Students With a Video Camera

videocontestThe Web site Patheos has decided to hold a “Faith on Campus” video contest, inviting students older than 18 to share their faith (or lack thereof) in a short video that’s no longer than five minutes.
The grand-prize winner will get 2,500 dollars, and 1,000 dollars will be awarded to the best video on each of these topics:

• Why I am a [fill in your faith]
• How I live my beliefs on campus
• Rituals and practices of my faith

Entries will be posted as they come in, and you can go to the site and vote for your favorites. The 20 videos that get the highest number of votes will enter the final round, where a panel of official judges, including Science & Religion Today contributors Craig Detweiler and Eboo Patel, will pick the winners. Another 1,000 dollars will be given to the video the public likes best.
The deadline for submission is April 15.
