The American Immigration Council Launches Its Annual Multimedia Contest for 14-25 Year Olds, With $1,000 First Prize.

The American Immigration Council is seeking submission for its national multimedia competition. The contest, "Change in Motion," challenges young adults to explore the role immigration plays in their everyday lives and communities through creative multimedia projects. Projects should focus on celebrating the diversity of the United States and explore the commonalities that bind our “nation of immigrants” together. Please share these guidelines with those who are interested.

Who is eligible?

Young adults between the ages of 14-25 are eligible. Individual or group entries are permitted; however, there is a single cash prize for first, second and third places.

What do we mean by “multimedia?”

Acceptable entries are videos, photo essays or slideshows. Presentations (video or photographic) should focus on the benefits of immigration.

How technical does my project need to be?

Your story and the way you tell it matter more than how sophisticated your technical abilities are. We encourage you to tell your story and not let a lack of technological expertise prevent you from doing so.

Is there a time limit?

Entries should be no more than five minutes long.

How do we enter the contest?

There are two ways to submit entries.

1) Submit a copy of the multimedia file on a CD or DVD to the American Immigration Council “Change in Motion” Multimedia Contest , 1331 G Street N.W. Suite 200, Washington, DC  20005, OR

2) You can also use YouTube to submit your video entry via your own YouTube account. Simply email changeinmotion@immcouncil.org with the submission date and a link to the submission on your YouTube account, make sure to put 2015 MULTIMEDIA Contest in the subject line. We will add the content on the American Immigration Council’s page on YouTube.

When submitting your videos and pictures, please tag the content with the following tags: “American Immigration Council’s “Change in Motion” Multimedia contest 2015. Please remember to tag your videos, so we are able to find your content.

How will the contest be judged?

The winners will be chosen by the American Immigration Council and a panel of judges.

What criteria will be used to select the winner?

The multimedia entries will be judged on the basis of creativity, story-telling ability and personal impact. The judging panel will also look for the most creative and original entries with the most engaging use of media.

What is the prize?

There will be first ($1,000), second ($500) and third place ($250) winners.

What is the deadline?

The deadline is 11:59 EST, January 15, 2015. Winners will be notified on or around March 2, 2015.

For more information, including the rules and terms of the contest, please visit the Multimedia Contest webpage.
