NLM & You: The Video Contest
The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), the world’s largest library of the health sciences and a part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services, is conducting a video contest. The contest supports NLM’s mission of publicizing the availability of its information products and services, including but not limited to Medline/PubMed, MedlinePlus, GenBank, PubMed Central, ClinicalTrials.gov, Bookshelf, AIDS Info, and Profiles in Science. The NLM invites the public to create original short videos which promote awareness of these products and services. Post videos to YouTube and submit entry form online by March 31, 2011. NLM will notify grand prize winner and runners up via e-mail by May 15, 2011, with a public announcement on the NLM Web site following notification.
Video entries should promote an NLM information product or service, such as one of the examples listed above, by telling a story of how the product or service has made a difference. For example, how has an NLM product or service helped you:
- Solve a health problem or enabled you to help a loved one?
- Carry out research or make a new discovery?
- Make a difference in clinical treatment or help a client or patient?
- Write a report?
There will be one grand prize winner. There may also be one or more runners up. The grand prize winner will receive $1,000.00. The videos of the grand prize winner and the runners up will be featured on NLM’s web site. The grand prize winner and runners up must provide a digital copy of the original video files and transcript to NLM in order to receive the award and be featured on the NLM website.
