The Reason Project Video Contest December 22, 2009

The Reason Project Video Contest

The Reason Project, founded by Sam Harris and Annaka Harris, is holding a video contest with a pretty sweet first prize:

The prize for the Winning Video of 2010 will be $10,000.

The prize for Second Place will be $4,000.

The prize for Third Place will be $1,000.

And what do you have to do to get the cash?

Make a short video that in some way communicates the importance of critical thinking. Post it on YouTube (or some other video-sharing site) and submit the code for the embedded video on the contest submission form.

There are a few more details, but nothing unusual.

It would be great if someone reading this site could pull it off.

It’d be even better if the winner could donate some of the prize money to a good cause.

The deadline is Ferbuary 28th, 2010.

    No pressure, lol…

  • Awww…no Aussies allowed.

  • Revyloution

    Lyvvie, there’s an obvious reason no Aussies are allowed. I backpacked around your island country for half a year. Your penchant for crushing multiple words into a single syllable is unacceptable. Your manner of speech is an affront to all English speaking countries of the world, including ‘Merika.

    It is so bad, that once I was asking directions to the town of Port Fairy. The woman I asked responded with a jumble of consonant and vowel sounds that resembled this

    R’ownd these pahts, we jus call ‘er Port

    Which I responded with

    Ah, sorry, we just called ‘er ‘P’ where I come from

    She nodded sagely and agreed that was a superior abbreviation of the towns name. Of course, she then invited us in for tea. Served some Tim Tams and the best baramundi we’d had in weeks. After promptly declaring us part of her extended family, we had to pry ourselves from her hospitality to make our way down to ‘P’ for the wonderful folk music festival.
