PIRG Announces Video Contest to Promote Public Transit

PirgCAMCORDER PIRG Announces Video Contest to Promote Public Transit
Readers, get thy camcorders. U.S. PIRG, the federation of state Public Interest Research Groups (PIRGs), is accepting entries for a video contest that would help convince bureacrats to implement better, faster, more efficient public transit and reduce road traffic. In the last decade, PIRG reports, the hours people spend stuck in traffic have skyrocketed from 18 hours per year to 38 hours.

The contest isn’t seeking the next Kazan or Kubric, nor does it require a flair for cinematography. The criteria for winners is simple: show viewers "why we need more and better public transportation," and "your vision of a 21st century transportation system." The winning videos "will be a critical part of an effort to educate city councils, legislatures across the country, and lawmakers in Washington, D.C."

Beyond doing your part to better public transit and the planet, PIRG will award winners cash prizes: a $500 prize for the winner, $150-$250 for runners up, and honorable mentions will receive a one-year membership to U.S. PIRG. Entries are due by July 4, 2008. See the PIRG website for full contest rules, entry criteria, scope out your competition, and submit your video.
