This is a contest – so no money unless you win. But might be a good chance for some exposure.
Deadline: February 14, 2011
I'm excited to tell you about our latest opportunity for all storytellers and new media makers. In partnership with the PBS show American Experience, which is airing the film Stonewall Uprising next spring, we are asking you for videos that tell us the story about the gay rights movement happening today in your community. Help us share news about this important civil rights story by contributing your own view.
Your video could be one of five to win a $1000 prize and maybe even a chance to air on PBS after the film. Video submissions will become part of a contest and guest judges, including prominent gay rights advocates Cyndi Lauper and Dan Savage, will help decide who wins. You can find out more about them, about the application process and what makes a winning video on the open call home page:
I can't wait to see your story.
The WGBH Lab invites you to help shape the future of public media.
Consider this an opening, a chance to share your fresh ideas as the next generation of independent and public media makers. We encourage emerging talent, aided by the latest technology, to lead us into new ways of making and interacting with content.
The engine of the Lab is innovation. Participate in our Open Calls, and take your work to a new level to win prizes or a chance to make it on-air, and contribute to the content we distribute to our partners in broadcast.
The WGBH Lab stands at the intersection of broadband and broadcast. The creative results of the Lab may appear on WGBH TV, WGBH.org and, as our partnerships expand, more broadly on PBS. What remains the same is WGBH's commitment to substance, quality, and independent voices.
Welcome to your public media.
