Push back against anti abortion extremism with your video.
Really…?! Abortion Stigma Busting Video Competition
Push back against anti-abortion extremism with your video!
The Abortion Care Network is sponsoring the first-ever video competition to show the world how people feel about the current climate of extreme anti-abortion legislation and societal stigma against abortion. “We are looking for all kinds of videos, from personal stories to pro choice activism, from direct calling out of anti-choice legislators to flashmob actions, as long it busts current stigma against abortion,” according to Peg Johnston, coordinator of the event. “Video is an important tool in changing attitudes and giving voice to those who have been silenced.”
The deadline is January 6th, 2014 and the registration link is http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=rrbrm5cab&oeidk=a07e880uqfe81765aa0. The link is also available on our website at http://www.abortioncarenetwork.org/news/video-competition or http://www.facebook.com/abortioncarenetwork .
Videos must be no longer than 3 minutes but very short videos using applications such as Vines or Instagram area also eligible. There are three $200 Judge’s Choice awards and three Honorable Mentions. $100 awards will go to the individual and $100 will go to the winner’s abortion fund of choice. Videos will be shown at Abortion Care Network’s conferences, embedded on related websites, and used for promotional purposes by ACN.
We would greatly appreciate your sharing this announcement widely.
