MAHCP Video Contest deadline extended to Jan. 31, 2019
We’ve listened to our MAHCP members and extended the deadline in the MAHCP Video Contest to Jan. 31, 2019!
That means members will have an extra month to get in your videos.
As a quick recap, the Video Contest was officially announced during the MAHCP AGM in October. For members, this is your chance to share with the public the important work that you do each and every day.
The prizes for this contest are spectacular! First prize is $1,500, Second prize is $1,000 and Third prize is $500.
We welcome submissions from individual members or groups of members. Please keep in mind that if you are doing a group video and yours happens to win, it is the responsibility of the main submitter of the video to disperse the funds as the group sees fit.
The videos should be less than three minutes long and can be comical, serious or anything in-between.
