$5000 Video Contest

March 1, 2011 | By Lauren Hart

The Independent Women’s Voice is having a video contest with a cash prize of $5,000 for the best video on Obamacare. Due date: March 23.

The below news release is from the Independent Women’s Voice:

"The Independent Women's Voice (IWV) announces its “ObamaCare Anniversary Video Contest!” We want your one-minute or less video explaining how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — popularly known as ObamaCare — will hurt our medical system and our freedoms.

"At IWV, we believe the health care law passed last year takes our country in the wrong direction by putting government bureaucrats in charge of health decisions instead of empowering patients.   We worry that ObamaCare will drive medical costs higher, reduce the quality of care, and ultimately lead to rationing. 

"If you share these concerns, we want you to put together a video of one minute or less that dramatizes the problems with ObamaCare.  The video can be clever, personal, funny or touching – however you can make the most compelling case.  So grab your camera, invite your friends and family, and tell your story!

"The winning video submission will receive a $5,000 cash prize.  The second and third prizes are $2,500 and $1,000, respectively, and there will be one $500 cash prize for an honorable mention. All winning videos will be featured on IWV's YouTube channel and at iwvoice.org. Winners will be announced at 12 p.m. EST March 23, 2011.

"To submit your video: Send us a video, one minute or less, no bigger than 2GB, along with your full name, phone number, state of residence and the words "I agree to the IWV Video Contest Rules" in the body of the email to iwvcontest2011@gmail.com with "IWV Video Contest Entry" as the subject.  The deadline is March 19, 2011 midnight EST.

"The contest winner will be determined by whichever video has the most "My choice for winner" comments from unique YouTube accounts at 12:01 a.m. EST on March 23, 2011. The winner will be notified by email and telephone, and announced on iwvoice.org at 12 p.m. March 23, 2011. Additional rules apply.
