Envision the Mission - Video Journalist Contest

THE CONTEST
We are looking for a video journalist who is willing to volunteer his/her time and talent to travel to a refugee camp alongside the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) and document their research for five days. The cost of the field mission will be covered for the winner and once a winner has been chosen, final trip details will be decided. Examples of field missions include refugee youth livelihood projects in Kenya, disability training on the Thai-Burma border and working with displaced adolescent girls in Tanzania, Ethiopia and Uganda.

YOUR JOB
1) Film and document your time spent on the mission.
2) On your return, work with the WRC to turn your footage into a short film about the mission to be used for the WRC's future use.
Please note that the WRC will have final approval on all content produced and distributed.

THE DETAILS
Submit your best narrative or experimental video about why you should be picked as a sponsored video journalist for the Women’s Refugee Commission. This is where you can be creative. We are open to anything!

Upload your video to YouTube. Make sure it has "Envision the Mission" somewhere in the title. If you don’t already have an account at YouTube, you need to register at http://www.youtube.com.create_account. It is free and it only takes a couple of minutes. Register now!

The contest closes on April 1, 2013 at midnight after which the videos will be judged to see if they comply with the requirements of the contest. Those videos that do not comply will be disqualified.
