Take a Shot at Changing the World

The "Take a Shot at Changing the World" video contest is to inspire youth from diverse social backgrounds to come together as one human race and to plant a seed of love.

This "viral" video initiative is a pioneering effort using the digital classroom to inspire a new generation to think about what is possible when we all work together to solve the world's problems and to eradicate poverty from the planet.

We request that budding film producers use their creativity to produce their own short videos (up to 5 minutes) about the plight of the disadvantaged in our communities. The video should contain a positive message on eradicating various worldwide problems.

Videos must comply with YouTube's 'Terms of Use'. Contest managers will review all videos, and if any are deemed inappropriate, the submissions will be declared ineligible and will be disqualified.

The deadline to submit your entry is 15th of May, 2012. Popular Voting will be open on YouTube from 1st of June to 30th June, 2012. The video with the most votes will be chosen as the winner. Finalists will be contacted via the e-mail address they submitted online.

The contest is open to all nationalities and the top seven videos, based on the popular vote and a vote by judges — consisting of a Hong Kong film producer and renowned advertising agencies from around the world — will be able to attend the 3rd University Scholars Leadership Symposium 2012 in Bali as our guests.

A video may be submitted as a group entry, but it will be up to the members of that group to divide any prize or winnings among themselves. All videos submitted, whether as a winning entry or not, may be used by Humanitarian Affairs, United Kingdom in whole or in part, royalty free, in any printed or electronic media and in promotional materials, including recruitment and online publications.

All entries must be original, unpublished and created solely by the submitting entrant(s) and not violate the intellectual property rights, copyright or right of property of any third party. Copyrighted materials will not be accepted unless specific permission for the use of such materials can be shown.

All entrants will receive a "Take a Shot at Changing the World" Certificate of Participation from Humanitarian Affairs, United Kingdom.
