As we learned last week at the “Jewish And. . .” program, “Jewish” is a verb, as in “How are you Jewing?” Just found out about this web video contest – please share with up-and-coming videographers! For complete info, visit the contest page: (their home page is cool too – leadel.net). Sorry for the late notice on this one – deadline is January 31, voting begins on February 1. Here are some of the details:
Subjects can be anything from street musicians to prime ministers, humble shopkeepers to intellectuals, teachers to activists to pro-bono giving doctors and lawyers. We want to hear from your grandmother and your little brother. We want to be moved, inspired, and touched by the full diversity of the contemporary Jewish experience.
We want you to share with us the Jewish people you find most inspiring. Perhaps we’ll find them inspiring too.
As opposed to all those “other” contests out there “Jews That Do” is Grass Roots, completely user generated and taps the web 2.0 community by utilizing new media and social networking.
He/she who enters the video Wins. That someone can be You. There is no age limit, but you do have to be at least Bar/Bat Mitzvah age. It can be someone you know well. Or someone you don’t. Maybe you’ve seen a stranger on the street, in the subway, or at your office who inspires you and are able to catch him/her on film. The only requirement is that all subjects be Jewish (as liberally defined by Taglit, Birthright).
And don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be professional! Use your cell phone, flip camera, digital camera, video camcorder, anything that takes video clips. In return, we’ll share your “Jew-Doer” with the world and give you the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes!
