Students Speak Out Against Anti-Semitism: A Creative Video Contest

Submit a video that educates about anti-Semitism and the prejudice, bigotry, hatred and violence it engenders.

The “Students Speak Out Against Anti-Semitism: A Creative Video Production Contest” is an education and awareness initiative sponsored by the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement (“CAM”) and B’nai B’rith International.

This contest engages students from around the world in a unique public awareness campaign promoting tolerance and communicating a message of equality. The videos will aim to educate about anti-Semitism and the prejudice, bigotry, hatred and violence it engenders.

Participants can make submissions in either of two categories:

  • Educate the general public on the value of a universally adopted definition of anti-Semitism and articulate why all public and private enterprises, such as universities, countries, and international organizations, should adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition.
  • Educate about anti-Semitism and inspire young people to be more tolerant towards others by illustrating the modern manifestations of anti-Zionism as anti-Semitism. Entrants should draw examples from the IHRA definition.

Submissions should be 2 to 3 minutes in length, relatable by people of all ages, and promote a better understanding of today’s anti-Semitism and its impact on Jewish communities around the world.

The winner and runners up of each age group will receive cash prizes, to be awarded on a virtual awards ceremony. The top three winners will receive a cash prize of $5,000 for first place, $2,000 for second place and $1,000 for third place.  Runner Up prizes may also be awarded.   Any team submissions will split these prizes.

The winning videos may be shared virally by the co-sponsors.  CAM and B’nai B’rith International may use one or several videos as a part of its global campaign to promote adoption of the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism.
