As part of CNN’s association with the Asia Pacific Screen Awards, the network is now inviting viewers to showcase their creative talent by seeking submissions from viewers for their videos that best represent Asia’s cultural diversity. It could be a video taken on a holiday, a video shot on your mobile phone on the way to work or any image that caught your eye – the choice is yours.
This is your chance to have your work featured in CNN’s ad campaign launching soon on print, online and TV, in millions of households around the world. To submit, simply shoot a short video (no longer than 3 minutes) and upload it as a video response to this video no later than midnight on 15 August 2009. Click on this link to submit your video, if you are a resident of India, Australia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan and Thailand.
The Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) acclaim, at a global level, the cinematic excellence and cultural diversity of the Asia-Pacific region. The initiative honours the works of filmmakers across a vast region representing four billion people; 60 per cent of the global population; 70 countries and areas; one third of the earth; and half the world’s film output.
CNN brings these awards and the outstanding works of the region’s filmmakers to its global audience through a series of television programs titled ‘Scene by Scene’ to be broadcast in October and November, as well as an edition of the network’s monthly Film show, ‘The Screening Room’.
