We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.
WHAT: Trend Micro’s fourth annual “What’s Your Story?” contest, an award-winning, user-generated video contest that gives youth an interactive platform to showcase not just their filmmaking talents, but how they have harnessed the power and connection of the Internet in a positive way through creative storytelling.
This year, Trend Micro has eliminated contest categories and is asking contestants to answer one question for two $10K grand prizes through their created films: What does the good side of the Internet look like? Contestants will be judged by how well they have both demonstrated the positive ways we use the Internet, dispelled the myths surrounding Internet dangers, as well as how effectively they have promoted and crowd-sourced their individual entries via social media.
Participate by viewing and voting on your favorite videos. Visit the video gallery at http://whatsyourstory.trendmicro.com/internet-safety/Gallery.do.
PRIZES: “What’s Your Story?” will award two grand prizes of $10,000 - one for an individual filmmaker, and another for a K-12 educational institution. Additional cash prizes will be granted for the runners up.
