Short Film Competition
The Do!nation Project will revolve around a national Short Film Competition.
It will include a panel of celebrity judges, national media support and a high profile gala event.
The competition will be driven by a comprehensive website that will offer information, educate people on how they can become Donors and motivate them to get involved and help to save lives.
To participate in the competition, entrants will need to create a short film about some aspect of organ and tissue donation and upload their film to the website. The Canadian public will then be invited to view the films and vote for their favorite. Social interaction will be fueled by entrants urging family and friends to visit the site and vote for their entries.
At the end of the competition period, 10 finalists will be selected and invited to participate in a gala event where celebrity judges will announce the winners.
To ensure a high level of public interest, substantial cash prizes will be awarded:
- First prize of $25,000
- Second prize of $15,000
- Third prize of $10,000
The Do!nation Project is a non-profit organization that aims to raise national awareness on the issues surrounding organ and tissue donation in Canada.
The Do!nation Project is proud to have the participation of world-renowned Canadian celebrities, namely Margaret Atwood, David Cronenberg, Sarah Polley, Rick Mercer and Ron Mann.
The Do!nation Project Short Film Contest will launch in the Fall of 2011.
Do!nation Project has produced a short film that depicts the impact that organ and tissue donation and transplantation has on people's lives. This film was produced as an example of the kind of films that the short film contest could generate. Watch it here.
