Announcing the Save Our Streets Multimedia Contest


We invite you to take part in the 2011 Save Our Streets Multimedia Contest. We are seeking talented youth and adult artists to contribute to our anti-gun violence public education campaign. We are accepting submissions for Public Service Announcement, Video or Radio Short, and Poster Design categories. The goal is to convey the strong message that shootings and killings are not acceptable in Crown Heights or any other neighborhood.  
Process
Submissions will be reviewed by distinguished community members with final decisions being made by the S.O.S. leadership team. In determining the contest winners, there will be two rounds of review. Those who pass the first review round will be invited to the 2011 Save Our Streets Multimedia Festival and Awards Ceremony where competing submissions will be exhibited and winners will be publicly recognized. Winners will also be featured on the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center blog.  
Why Submit?
-If you win, you can expect your work to appear all over Crown Heights and on local media venues as a symbol of hope and positive change for our community.
-You will be joining a program that is part of a national effort to reduce gun violence.
-1st and 2nd place winners from each category will be awarded with a monetary prize and will be considered for future paid engagement.

I have very little artistic talent ....but do have a reasonably equipped wood shop.

If anyone would like to construct a project made from wood (sign, monument, what have you), they would get me my help in building it.
