Deadline Extended for #Don’tFrackNY Video Contest

  |  January 16, 2013

In case you’re anti-fracking and want to express your views creatively, good news: Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono are holding a video contest, and the deadline has been extended to January 30. The #Don’tFrackNY video contest is intended to influence both Gov. Cuomo, who has “delayed until February a decision on whether to allow fracking for gas in the state,” and the general public, who are probably still pretty confused about the issue. Jobs? Energy? We need those things so much. Tainted drinking water? Ruined land? We can’t abide those.

But this is for the non-confused, those who have made up their minds about the issue.

Here’s the skinny:

“We’re looking for two types of videos: a 30-second TV ad and a short video. The 30-second TV ad should be directed at the Governor. The short video should focus on educating people about the hazards of fracking and gas company propaganda and be no more than three minutes long.

Aside from the length limits, we aren’t putting any restrictions on your video submissions. You may enter work in either one or both categories. Show us your creativity!”

The prize, besides getting your gov’s ear? Lunch with the Lennon-Ono team.
