The Videoblogs Dialogue!

The Videoblogs Dialogue is a user-generated video contest, in which participants submit their own videoblogs (3 min or less), pertaining to themes of mental health and/or personal struggle. There are two ways to enter. Participants aged 18-24 are eligible to win a $1,000 Cash Prize and Mentorship package, to be put towards the creation of their own short film on mental health. But anyone, (age 18 and up) can enter for the chance to have their videoblog included in the closing credits ofThe Videoblogs (a feature film about mental health in the age of tech).

We're running this contest as a way to contribute to a greater dialogue about mental health in America, and to encourage tomorrow's artists, filmmakers and performers to bravely engage with what have classically been labeled as difficult subjects (depression, anxiety, trauma) with an ultimate focus on hope.

Created and sponsored by the producers of the upcoming feature film, The Videoblogs, along with official partner Project UROK, and with additional prizes offered from co-sponsors Seed&Spark and Big Vision Empty Wallet, the contest will provide winners (age 18-24 only*) with:

Cash prize ($1,000), to kickstart the funding of their own short film about mental health

Mentorships to help guide them through the creation and distribution of said film

*Entrants older than age 24 may also submit, for the chance to have their entry included in the credits for The Videoblogs.*

The Jury for the The Videoblogs Dialogue includes Comedian Paul Gilmartin (Host, The Mental Illness Happy Hour), Writer/Performer Grace Parra (The Nightly Show), Tomorrow Daily Host and CNET Senior Editor Ashely Esqueda, and renowned Acting Teacher Alice Spivak. Read more about this talented crew on our Jury page.
