District 4-C4 Marketing Committee (MarCom) is soliciting entries for it’s first Video Contest as part of District Governor Fanny Chu’s theme Be Seen, Be Heard, Be Known.
Clubs are encouraged to submit a short video detailing one service project that they have found success in during this Lionistic year (starting July 1, 2020), during COVID-19 pandemic. This can be a long established project that has continued to perform as an essential service, a reoccurring project that has had to be adapted to fit the current health restrictions, or a completely new project that has sprung up from these circumstances. The choice is yours.
All submissions are welcome! This is our first of hopefully many video contests for the year, and the eventual goal is to combine submissions from all contests into an end of year video under the theme Be Seen, Be Heard, Be Known, to be presented at the District Convention and used for future marketing efforts of the District.
Not only winners, but all participating clubs will be recognized for their efforts at the upcoming Cabinet Meeting. And at the end of the day, you’ll have a cool video to market your club, promote your service, and recruit new members!
