Campaign for Free Expression

Hey, CFI is having themselves a contest thingie:

Participation is easy: create a short public service announcement style video about the importance of free expression, upload the video to YouTube, and tag it with “Campaign for Free Expression Video Contest”. Videos must be submitted by September 20th, 2010. On International Blasphemy Rights Day, September 30th, 2010, we will announce the top three winners, with a grand prize of $2000! See the full instructions and rules before creating your entry.

If you make a video, post it here so we can all see what we’re up against!

  1. Gah, it’s not open to non-USA/Canada residents. They cite legal reasons, which is fine as there is a cash prize, but this is the internet and it’s a huge oversight not to have an ‘international’ category with, say, a trophy instead of cash prize, for a competition on an international platform covering an international issue.

    Obviously I was not daft enough to make a vid before reading the rules in full, but still, disappointing. CFI is an international org and there should be some consideration for that.

  2. Tracy, that *is* odd–when CFI did a Free Expression student essay contest, it was open to international submissions, and the top prize went to a fellow from South Africa. The Campaign for Free Expression’s blasphemous phrase contest was also international; the five winners were from the U.S., Canada, Thailand, and Ireland. Hmm, I’ll shoot the contest rule-writers an e-mail about it.
