Video Contest Just for Seniors

Written By: Kim Hong - Jul• 16•12

Cyber-Seniors Inc. and Cyber-Seniors Documentary Inc. (Cyber-Seniors) are sponsoring a video contest (“Contest”) with selected entries hosted on the Cyber-Seniors Corner Youtube channel.

Cyber-Seniors is a Documentary Film that has been following the journey of several senior citizens as they uncover the magic of the Internet (The release date for the Film is expected to be in early 2013). They decided to raise the stakes by sponsoring a Video Competition hosted on Youtube.

How did they come up with this idea?

The contest was inspired by 89 year old Shura, who, with the encouragement of her young mentor, 20 year old Max, created a YouTube video which showed the world how to make a grilled cheese sandwich and corn-on-the-cob with nothing more than a kettle and an iron.  It was such a hit that several of her “80 and 90-something” friends started inquiring about making their own YouTube videos.

So they’ve decided to ask everyone else to share their wisdom, talent, humor, and experiences with the world! Other Cyber-Seniors have contributed to this channel and now the public has the opportunity to flex their tech muscles and showcase themselves on YouTube!

Deadline is July 20, 2012. For complete rules, visit Cyber-Seniors Contest Page. Entrants can win up to $750 each.  And all participants will receive special mention in the Documentary Film, as well as a ticket to the Toronto Premiere.
