2020 Census Video Prize Challenge
The Census Open Innovation Labs at the U.S. Census Bureau has launched a first-of-its-kind Video Prize Challenge to help get the word out about the 2020 Census with a total of $50,000 in prize awards.
The goal of the competition is to accelerate the creation of shareable content that speaks to hard-to-count communities, through engaging and informative short-form videos. This open call for content is designed to help educate and motivate individuals to communicate why it’s critical to complete the 2020 Census — from getting the funding their community needs, to representation in congress.
This effort is aligned to the ‘reminder phase’ of the 2020 Census campaign to crowd source user-generated content that drives home the key message that “It’s not too late to respond either online, via phone, or by mail”. Submissions are open until April 11th at 2:59am EST, winners will be announced early to mid May.
Three prizes will be awarded: a $30,000 grand prize, $10,000 runner up, and $10,000 student prize.
This is an excellent opportunity to engage your audiences, networks and partner organizations working on GOTC efforts, as well as individuals, students, content makers and influencers.
