Date:1/16/2009

Enter today for a chance to win up to $2,500 and promote colon-cancer screening

SEATTLE, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The deadline to enter Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center's "Get Screened" video contest - a creative challenge to help shine a spotlight on the importance of colorectal-cancer screening - has been extended to Jan. 30.

The contest is part of the Hutchinson Center's ongoing awareness campaign - "Your colon. Your life. Your call." - to increase colon-cancer screening rates and reduce deaths from the disease in Washington state.

The competition is open to movie makers age 18 and older. Film or video submissions must be either 30 seconds or 60 seconds in length and can be in any style or genre, including animation, drama, still art, imagery, comedy or documentary. Entries will be judged on five criteria: originality, creativity, concept, information and overall presentation.

The top 15 entries will be posted to YouTube.com in February and the public will be allowed to view each finalist's submission and to post comments. Each finalist will be evaluated by a panel of celebrity judges.

In mid-March five winning entries will be announced: one grand prize ($2,500), two first-runners-up ($1,000) and two second-runners-up ($500). The winning videos and finalists will also be posted on the campaign Web site and be screened at a public event.

The winning videos will incorporate some or all of the following messages:

  • Getting screened for colon cancer can save your life
  • The risk of colon cancer increases around age 50
  • Ask your doctor about the importance of colon-cancer screening
  • Encourage anyone you know around age 50 to get screened for colon cancer
