All Interact club and sponsor Rotary club members are eligible to enter.
Videos can be of any style -- fiction, documentary, animated, experimental, or live action -- and must be in English or have English subtitles. They must be at least 30 seconds long but no longer than three minutes. Read the complete contest rules.
"The contest is a great way for Interactors to showcase the great work that they do locally as well as internationally, and to show the world how Interact impacts their lives and those around them," says Annahita Ghaboussi, RI Youth Activities coordinator. "Interactors are a young, energetic, and technologically advanced group who will have fun making these videos. We are confident they will prove their creativity while expressing what Interact means to them."
So grab your camera and start filming today. Show the world what Interact means to you!
