CSPI Celebrates Food Day with Video Contest
The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has invited the submission of “videos of people pouring out soda on or about October 24” to celebrate the second annual Food Day. Videos will be accepted until November 7, 2012, with the winning entry receiving $1,000. According to CSPI executive director Michael Jacobson, “Food Day is about inspiring people to change diets for the better and by advocating for better food policies. Making a ‘Pour One Out’ video is the perfect way for a budding filmmaker—or anyone with a smartphone, frankly—to join the movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.” Entries will apparently be judged for creativity, originality and message effectiveness.
