Create a Short Video by May 7 to Help Raise Awareness of the National Asbestos Problem

Wellesley, MA (PRWEB) May 5, 2010 -- Americans have less than 1 week to help draw national attention to asbestos, the toxic, and often deadly, substance considered “the largest manmade public health crisis in history” according to the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO). Using a video camera, Flip camera, webcam or camera phone, anyone can create a 90-120 second video vignette to drive attention to the national asbestos problem and motivate Americans to join the movement to “Ban Asbestos Now.”

Ban Asbestos Now,” is a campaign to build awareness of the continued use of asbestos in the United States. Each year, 2000-3000 people are diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer which is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos. Asbestos has been banned in some 50 countries, however it still exists potentially everywhere throughout the United States, including the ceilings and floors of building that were built before 1980, duct tape, caulking, textured paints, car brakes and automotive parts, and even children’s toys.

To enter the “Ban Asbestos Now” Video Search, create a short video that addresses questions such as, “Did you know asbestos is still legal in the US?”, “Where can you find it?” and “Do you know what diseases it can cause?” The winning individual or team will be sent to the world famous 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival in Westwood Village, receive $1000 cash per person, and the winning video may become the viral platform of the “Ban Asbestos Now” campaign at www.BanAsbestosNow.com. The winner will be announced on May 19th, 2010 by a select panel of judges chosen by Sokolove Law.

For inspiration and ideas about what to highlight in your video submission, join the Ban Asbestos Now Facebook group or follow Ban Asbestos on Twitter. For contest rules, submission guidelines and promotional materials, visit www.BanAsbestosNow.net or contact Sean Galliher
