Action! Film contest aims to highlight the importance of giving


Are you a budding artist or filmmaker? The McMaster Philanthropy Multimedia Festival wants to see your best work.

To help celebrate the launch of McMaster’s new philanthropy website project, University Advancement is inviting members of the campus community to create videos and multimedia presentations that help publicize the impact and influence of philanthropy at the University.

The ideal length for a video is anywhere from 30 to 60 seconds, and all submissions should follow McMaster’s brand guidelines. Organizers will be happy to supply McMaster-owned images or photos, if requested.

Check out suggested themes and read the full list of rules and regulations here.

The winning creations will be screened on the new philanthropy website, and will also play in rotation on a number of video screens located on campus. Winners will also receive a $250 gift card to the store of their choosing, and an invitation to the official website launch in April.

Submit your video here. All submissions must be received by Friday, March 28.
