US embassy issues democracy challenge

The US embassy in Cambodia has launched its inaugural Democracy Video Challenge, asking for videos no more than five minutes long that complete the phrase “Democracy is…”. Videos can be any style: fiction, documentary, animated or live action. US embassy public affairs assistant Aaron Otte said even a cameraphone and the simplest idea could be used. First prize is a US$500-$1,000 video camera and second prize is $100. Entries must be submitted to the embassy by January 15, 2010. Videos in English or with English subtitles can be entered in the international competition. See www.videochallenge.america .gov. for details.
