Nuclear Age Peace Foundation Seeking Entries for Peacemaker Video Contest

2009 Swackhamer Disarmament Video Contest offers cash prizes, with $1,000 for top clip

The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation has announced the 2009 Swackhamer Disarmament Video Contest. This year’s title is “Breakthrough: Putting the Nuclear Genie Back in the Bottle.” The contest, hosted on YouTube, seeks short (two to three minutes) videos addressing that theme.

Here are the contest guidelines:

President Obama has stated, “This is the moment to begin the work of seeking the peace of a world without nuclear weapons.” The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation wants to make sure that the new U.S. policy reflects this position, and we are working hard to make sure Obama’s words are turned into action.

Many proponents of nuclear weapons argue that nuclear weapons cannot be “un-invented,” or that “the nuclear genie cannot be put back in the bottle.”

How can we achieve a world free of nuclear weapons by 2020? Once this is achieved, how can we make sure that the “nuclear genie” stays in the bottle forever? Make a video of three minutes or less addressing these questions.

To enter, join the You Tube group at www.youtube.com/group/genieinbottle. Once you have uploaded your video on the You Tube page, fill out the contest entry form. You will need to include your video’s URL on your entry form.

Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three videos, with $1,000 for first place, $750 for second and $250 for third. There will be up to five honorable mention awards.

All entries must be received electronically by 5 p.m. June 15. A committee of filmmakers and educators selected by the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation will judge entries on the basis of originality of ideas, creativity and clarity of expression. Winners will be announced on July 15.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
