Al-Awda Alternate Focus Third Annual Worldwide Video Contest
Submission Due Date - March 1, 2008

Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition, and Alternate Focus are dedicated to presenting the unheard voice of the Palestinian people to the American public.

In the past two years we were privileged to view video film submissions by videographer activists exploring the lives of the Palestinian people, their heroism and their resistance under the Zionist occupation of their land. Each year winners were chosen out of many entries by our panel of judges. The quality of submissions was very high, and many of the films have since found their way on cable television and around the world.

By popular demand, we are now calling for submissions for the Third Annual Worldwide Video Contest.

This is an opportunity for videographer activists to see their work on television and distributed on DVD's worldwide, while advancing the cause of Palestinian return and self-determination.

The winning entries will also be screened at the 6th Annual International Al Awda Convention which will take place May 16-18, 2008 on the 60th year of Al Nakba in Anaheim, California.

Additionally, cash prizes will be awarded to the finalists: First prize $500.00; Second prize $300.00; Third prize $100.00

A panel of Al-Awda and Alternate Focus judges will view all submissions.
