Al-Awda, The Palestine Right of Return Coalition, and Alternate Focus are dedicated to presenting the unheard voice of the Palestinian people to the American public.

Last year we were privileged to view video film submissions by videographer activists exploring the lives of the Palestinian people, their heroism and their resistance under the Zionist occupation of their land. Three winners were chosen out of many entries by our panel of judges. The quality of the submissions was very high, and many of the films have since found their way around the world.

By popular demand, we are now instituting the second annual call for submissions.

This is an opportunity for videographer activists to see their work on television and distributed on DVD’s worldwide, while advancing the cause of Palestinian return and self-determination.

In addition, cash prizes will be awarded to the finalists: First prize $500.00; Second prize $300.00; Third prize $100.00

A panel of Al-Awda and Alternate Focus judges will view all submissions.

For further information and the video contest submission form please see our flyer.

Please detach the form and return it with your video submission to:

Al-Awda and Alternate Focus Video Contest
8439 Paseo Del Ocaso
La Jolla, Ca 92037, U.S.A.

Tape and DVD submissions may be in any format and any length.

Thank you and good luck!
