The Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics, and Policy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University is sponsoring a video contest on the future of news to commemorate the Center’s 25th Anniversary.
From the contest announcement and you can watch Shorenstein Director Alex Jones discuss the contest in the video clip below.
In celebration of the Shorenstein Center’s 25th Anniversary we’re calling on aspiring journalists, filmmakers and avid media consumers to help us think about the future of news.
To be eligible for the competition, you must create a video no more than two minutes long (PG-rated please) that answers the question, “What is the future of news?”
Winning videos will be chosen by a selection committee appointed by the Shorenstein Center. The judges are Lorie Conway, documentary filmmaker; Rick Kaplan, executive producer, This Week with Christiane Amanpour, ABC News; and Mark Whitaker, executive vice president and managing editor, CNN. The winning entry will receive a cash prize of $2,000. Two runners-up will receive $500 each. The grand prize winner and two runners-up will be invited to the 25th Anniversary Celebration of the Shorenstein Center: “The Media and Politics Frontier.”
