    In preparation for a Gala Event we are holding in Toronto at the TIFF  Bell Lightbox on December 5th, sovaldi
    2011 (in which the Governor General is attending) we are holding a video contest with prizes equalling $5000.

    I encourage you to post the attached Poster on your Campus message boards. We also have a trailer which can be sent to you if you are willing to post it on any digital info boards on campus.

    Please visit our Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/volunteerTO to view the trailer and videos from our Digital Storytelling Project.

    This is an excellent opportunity for your students to experiment with theme and potentially get their work viewed on the big screen at the Bell Lightbox.

    Below are the details. Please visit our websitewww.volunteertoronto.ca/contest for more info.

    Volunteer Toronto announces the launch of its “The End is Near without Volunteers” video cotest, which will accept video submissions via YouTube  from October 31st 2011 until January 1st,  2012, with an early bird phase ending November 31st. “The End is Near Without Volunteers” asks entrants to imagine a world in which the help so needed by individuals and communities wasn’t available.  The contest is the flip side of another initiative, SharedTime, a digital storytelling project in partnership with the Center for Digital Storytelling (www.storycenter.org)that tells of the positive impact volunteering makes on individuals and thebroader community.

    All video entries must meet key requirements to be eligible. Contest entrants must work within the horror, thriller or dramatic genres (or any combination of genres including these) and theme “When the help you need isn’t there” . Finally, the video must be in English and be no more than 120 seconds in length. Individuals age 14 or older can submit their video at www.youtube.com/sharedtimeto

    All video submissions received by midnight January 1st, 2012 will be judged based on key criteria, including the entrant’s creativity in presenting the theme “When the help you need isn’t there” and the technical quality of the video.. Up to 10 semi-finalists will be chosen and their submissions featured on the YouTube “The End is Near Without Volunteers” Web page.  Three finalists will be chosen by a panel of experts .  Submissions made before November 31st 2011 are eligible for an early bird prize and presentation at an International Volunteer Day event at the TIFF Bell Light Box for the end of UN International Year of Volunteering +10 on December 5th.
