Reporters Without Borders hosts the
Thanks to the Ford Foundation, Reporters Without Borders, the biggest international organization defending media and journalists’ rights, is launching the "For Press Freedom" Contest with CNN/U.S., to raise awareness on freedom of the press.
Reporters Without Borders is challenging US college students to create a video PSA of up to 50-seconds to help raise awareness about press freedom. Students from any higher education institution may participate. For details on eligibility, see the rules here
Reporters Without Borders will welcome PSAs that are creative, professional, and have enough impact to not only catch the viewers attention, but make them absorb the message, even after the video is off the air. PSAs should also reflect the character of RSF. More insights here
If you win, CNN will air your PSA nationwide on May 3, 2012 and you may get an internship with Reporters Without Borders if you are able. Also, the organization will honor you at a press conference that day, and pay for travel and accommodations to New York City for up to three of your team members.
Make sure your entry form is complete. If you choose to involve your University by having their name and logo in the PSA, make sure to have the signature of a dean or other authorized official giving you permission. Submit your video PSA via YouSendIt and your completed entry form.
