It’s time for the 2011 Rhode Island 7DAYPSA competition where filmmaker teams compete by writing, shooting and editing a public service announcement for a non-profit organization that provides a needed service to the local community. Teams can choose from one of three start days to begin their seven day production period to better fit their schedules. The clock will start when they receive their client assignment. The winning PSAs will be broadcast for a year by our Rhode Island media sponsors, COX Communications, the CW-28, and WJAR-TV 10. After broadcast, the PSAs will be eligible to be submitted by the 7DAYPSA for consideration for industry recognition such as New England Emmy and Hatch Awards.
This competition is a great way for filmmakers to get creative and be proactive about their careers and their karma. The real winners are the local non-profit organizations that now have a broadcast presence, enhancing their ability to provide services to their communities. Last years clients, Big Sisters of Rhode Island and the Sensational Child got a big boost from the PSAs created for them. The more teams that enter, the more non-profits we can help.
