“To Form A More Perfect 21st Century Union…”

Do you find yourself annoyed with the state of our government and democracy?

Do you want your voice to be heard?

Do you sometimes feel that you’re just one person and you would never be able to affect change or be a part of something greater than yourself?

Calling all Bloggers, Animators, Writers, Designers, Artists, Filmmakers, Musicians, Developers, and Photographers…Check out this awesome opportunity to spread your ideas about democracy & government…and maybe win A LOT of cash!!

“Looking@Democracy is a national competition offering a total of $100,000 in prize money for short, provocative media submissions designed to spark a national conversation about why government is important to our lives, or how individuals and communities can come together to strengthen American democracy. Launching February 4, 2013, the challenge will award $25,000 for First Place along with significant prizes for 2nd and 3rd place as well as categories and awards for People’s Choice and Emerging Artists.”

Submissions deadline is April 30th.

So you may be sitting thinking…this sounds stupid…

WHY?!

Free speech is what makes our country great, whether we agree with it or not.  Having the ability to speak our minds and protest, or question our government is what feeds democracy and opens debate, allowing us to grow as individuals and as a nation.  

So to those of you who don’t agree with me…

So Come On! One voice can influence the masses.
