With the ongoing situation of the Covid-19 outbreak in Pakistan, we were going to postpone our annual video story contest, but to give back to Pakistan's passionate creatives, we have decided to adapt and pivot the competition in a direction that aims to promote healthy and responsible community building.

Dawn.com and Deutsche Welle (DW اردو) invite you to share positive stories; of how you're creatively coping with the new reality while practicing physical distancing, or how those around you are turning these challenging times into those of opportunity and inspiration.

SHOOT A VIDEO THAT TELLS A STORY

Learning a new craft? Teaching someone a skill? Helping those in need?

Or do you have a story to tell about a local hero who is serving the community at this time? Is a family member, a friend, or a neighbour, working on the frontlines and helping the country run smoothly?

We are looking for videos that tackle either:

How you have creatively used this time in lockdown to make it worthwhile and productive

How people around you are fighting or helping to keep Pakistan safe.

Send us your entries in the form of a short video shot through a camera or your cell phone. You can also use your own (previously shot) footage or animations to support your work and be creative.

We will be accepting videos 1- 3 MINUTES in length. They can be in any format and shot in any dimension as long as they are interesting and work for a digital audience.

NOTE: PLEASE RESPECT CORONAVIRUS SOPS IN ORDER TO PROTECT OTHERS AND STAY SAFE. DO NOT PUT YOURSELF OR OTHERS AT RISK WHILE SHOOTING.

Candidates can participate in the contest between June 22, 2020 and July 25, 2020 by following these steps:

Upload the final video file to a Dropbox, WeTransfer or Google Drive folder.
Share the link to download the video to videocontest@dawn.com — the email should also include names of all participants, and a line stating that "The film has been produced following the rules and guidelines provided on the contest website, and consent is given to the organisers for owning all rights to the film".

If your video is shortlisted as a finalist, you will receive a second email at a later stage.

If you have any queries, reach out to us at videocontest@dawn.com and/or +92-331-2444651

After all submissions are received, a jury from Dawn.com and DW will evaluate entries and select winners.

Winners will be announced on Dawn.com and its social media platforms.
