With less than a week left in the Come Clean 4 Congo video contest, it’s time to cast your vote and help decide who should win the grand prize and be flown to Los Angeles for the Hollywood Film Festival.
From the many excellent videos we received, our celebrity judges – Oscar-nominated actor Ryan Gosling, actress Sonya Walger from Lost, and Oscar-nominated director Wim Wenders – narrowed the field down to three. Now you can help decide which video is the best.
Voting ends next Tuesday, September 8th, and the winner will be announced the next day. The creator of the winning video will be flown to Los Angeles in October, where the video will be screened at the first-ever human rights symposium during the Hollywood Film Festival at the ArcLight Cinema.
When the Come Clean 4 Congo video contest launched last spring, contestants were asked to create videos that illustrate the links between the sexual violence plaguing eastern Congo and the trade in conflict minerals that power our cell phones and laptops. Many people submitted videos to the contest, and some celebrities and members of Congress even decided to create videos to raise awareness about the scourge of sexual violence in Congo.
