Does your physician wear a head scarf because of religious beliefs? How does an American teenager who practices Islam juggle hectic teen life with religious respect? Are you an American Muslim who has a close friend who is not, or are you a non-Muslim with friends who practice Islam? What can you learn from each other?
We’re offering a $20,000 Grand Prize for the best new and creative short video that reflects the American Muslim experience. Everyone in the U.S. is invited to compete, regardless of race or religion, so grab a camera, pick an assignment, read our online tips, and get filming.
Need some help? Check out our Director’s Toolkit – our online library of video images and music to get you going. Cut it together, add a voiceover, and you have a film!
Videos can be voted on by anyone in the U.S. Entries receiving the top votes in each assignment will be judged by a celebrity panel of judges. The winner of each assignment will be awarded $5,000!
