Reminder: Create A PSA About The Impact Of Technology On Creativity And You Can Win $1,000
from the step-on-up dept
As you may remember, NBC Universal via New York City, is running a contest trying to get NYC school children to create anti-piracy public service announcement (PSA) propaganda videos. In exchange for that, they’re giving the “winner” $500… but also taking their copyright. We think it’s a bit ironic that a contest where you’re forced to only talk about how great copyright is also forces you to give up your copyright.
Anyway, thanks to some generous Techdirt readers (and a matching grant from us directly), we’re offering our own contest and the deadline is rapidly approaching. You’ve basically got a week left. We’re looking for the PSAs to be about the impact of technology on creativity. We’re not giving you talking points, or even a specific view you have to take. Unlike NBC Universal and New York City, we trust you to make your own arguments, not regurgitate what you’ve been handed. We’re also offering twice the amount of money they are… and we don’t force you to give up your copyright. So, step on up. Details of how to enter can be found here.
