SPH Public Service Announcement Contest

The University of Minnesota School of Public Health is sponsoring its 3rd annual “It’s Global�? public service announcement (PSA) contest. School of Public Health (SPH) officials hope it will attract talented novice and seasoned filmmakers from across the country and beyond to heed the call and submit their work.

The contest provides filmmakers an opportunity to showcase their original work while making a statement on global public health topics such as pollution, nutrition, refugee health, climate change, clean water, infectious disease, and natural disaster preparedness.

Entrants will get to test their talent as they describe a public health problem, identify a potential solution, and present, via film media, a clear call to action. The entries must be 30 seconds or less (without credits).

Select entries will be showcased Monday, April 6, 2009 and the $250 youth category first-place prize and the adult category $500 first-place prize will be awarded. All entries will be screened throughout the SPH-sponsored National Public Health Week Film Festival (April 6-11) in Minneapolis.

To find out more about the competition and how to submit your entry, please visit www.sph.umn.edu/psa or contact the School of Public Health via e-mail at: film@umn.edu.
