Contest to create CIME's new media ethics short video (1 minute)

Do you care about how journalists operate? Do you have what it takes to make a ‘viralicious’ media ethics video? CIME is looking for enthusiastic contestants to create CIME's new media ethics short video to stream across our network and the wider media world.

Check out last year’s winner video and if you think you can do one alike or better, please do not hesitate to enter the competition!

The winner of the media ethics short video contest in 2011 was Lupica Alexandru from Romania. Congratulations and thanks for the great work!

The 2012 winner video is expected to;

 - express visually what ethical journalism means

- spark conversation among a large audience concerning an ethical topic

- make people watch something more than once

- make your friends and social community enjoy learning about media ethics.

CIME is a non-profit organization that brings together a network of journalists throughout the world to provide training, discussion and expertise in the ethics of their profession. Media ethics is extremely important and we aim to share this with the rest of the world. In order to do so we welcome creative - not necessarily experienced - video makers to show off their talent and original ideas that represent good media ethics at work.

The winner video will be the official CIME film for one year!

The winner and 5 of his/her chosen friends will be invited to participate in our media ethics online training and an interview with the winner will be published in our monthly newsletter!

The winner will also receive a copy of the marvellous book from Reuters - Our World Now 5
