Call for Submissions: Looking@Democracy Digital Media Competition

The Illinois Humanities Council, with support from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, is sponsoring a nationwide challenge called Looking@Democracy. The purpose of this competition is to generate short, provocative digital media content designed to spark a national conversation about how we can all come together to strengthen American democracy. A total of $100,000 in prize money in 5 categories will be awarded.
 
Submissions may take the form of short videos, audio clips, animation, music videos, public service announcements, infographics, graphic art, and even Facebook and iPhone apps. They all just need to be digital so they can be shared electronically.
 
Submissions will be accepted beginning February 4th, 2013. The deadline is April 16, 2013.
