LOUISVILLE, Kentucky, MAY 18, 2012 (Zenit.org).- Building on its mission to engage young adults and media makers to explore important faith-related issues through media and art, an initiative called Goodness Reigns is launching a mini contest, a short video competition titled “Natural Family Planning: The Better Way.”
Prizes include a Panasonic GH2 camera, a Manfrotto monopod or the choice of a $1,000 gift card to B&H Photo.
Anyone may enter the contest by submitting a video under five minutes that either explains or explores Natural Family Planning. Submissions will be accepted from May 25 to June 25 through the Goodness Reigns Web site.
Winners will be announced July 16, at which time the public will be invited to participate in a People’s Choice voting period until July 22. The People’s Choice winner will be announced on July 23.
The contest is a new offering from Goodness Reigns, which orchestrated an international video contest that brought together amateur filmmakers from the United States, India and Mexico for World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid, Spain. There, they presented their videos to other WYD pilgrims and developed friendships and future contacts for collaboration. A similar contest will be launched in July 2012 leading up to WYD 2013 in Brazil.
