(Help Save Lives and Stop Hepatitis B through a PSA Video Contest)

PHILADELPHIA (January 2012) – Hep B Free Philadelphia, a citywide and community-owned education campaign led by the Hepatitis B Foundation to save lives and stop hepatitis B, is calling on the Greater Philadelphia community to participate in its “B A Hero” Public Service Announcement (PSA) Video Contest 2012. Interested participants are asked to create 30-second PSAs to raise awareness about hepatitis B.

There are three opportunities to submit PSAs about the subject of hepatitis B awareness in relation to the “B A Hero” theme. Deadlines are Feb. 17, 2012; Mar. 16, 2012; and Apr. 13, 2012 – no later than 11:59 p.m. EST. There will be three separate judging periods in which video submissions will be added to the Hep B Free Philadelphia Facebook page and Facebook users will have the opportunity vote on their favorite video. Three finalists will be identified and each will receive a prize of $100. The grand prize winner, selected by Hep B Free Philadelphia and Hepatitis B Foundation representatives, will receive an additional $150 and their PSA will be shown at the 2012 Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival and Hep B Free Philadelphia’s annual media event.

“Hepatitis B is a serious infection that affects at least 2 million people in the U.S. It is often known as a silent killer because its symptoms tend to be hidden until it’s simply too late,” said Chari Cohen, Hepatitis B Foundation Associate Director of Public Health. “By offering this PSA video contest, we are hoping to engage people in the Philadelphia region, create awareness about hepatitis B and help saves lives by having people get tested for this preventable and treatable disease.”

Companies that are incorporated in the Greater Philadelphia region are also eligible. Within this contest, the Greater Philadelphia region is defined as the Pennsylvania counties of Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Lancaster, Lehigh, Montgomery and Philadelphia.

Video submissions can be in any style or genre of film or video including, but not limited to, animation, drama, still art, imagery, comedy or documentary. Videos should be formatted as MPEG-4, 320×240 files. When submitting via traditional mail or hand-delivery, the files must be saved on DVD-R discs and delivered to the Hepatitis B Foundation at 3805 Old Easton Road, Doylestown, Pa. 18902.
