Why do you love Ohio University? What makes this place unique? How has the OHIO experience prepared you for the future or empowered you to become your best self?Distill that love into a 30-second video and you could win an Apple iPad or Kindle Fire.
Starting Jan. 14, University Communications and Marketing (UCM) is accepting entries in the Your OHIO Film Festival, a video celebration of the OHIO spirit. Anyone—current or prospective students, faculty, staff or alumni—may submit a video.
“I’m very pleased to be able to share an initiative that involves our University community,” said Renea Morris, executive director of UCM. “It will be exciting to see all of the creative ways contestants will express their personality and enthusiasm about why OHIO is a great fit for them.”
For the contest, UCM will select the top entry in each of four categories: Bobcat Pride, Most Creative, Most Humorous, and Most Heartfelt. The category winners will be posted online for popular vote via Facebook. The video that gets the most votes will be crowned “People’s Choice” and win the grand prize: the choice of an iPad or Kindle Fire.
Other prizes will be awarded, and videos also may be featured in the university’s upcoming marketing campaign.
The deadline to enter is Feb. 28. For details and an entry form, visit www.ohio.edu/yourvoice.
