Following the success of the first, “Inspired by Israel” video competition, Adam and Gila Milsten foundation has recently released particulars of this year’s contest. The once a year completion details were released in collaboration with the 12Tribe Film Foundation. Aired on Israelvideonetwork.com, the completion requires competing parties to present clips that will enlighten, captivate and inspire the public about Israel. An overall amount of $20,000 has been set aside for cash prize awards for the winners. The $20,000 also includes the principal award of $8,000.
Adam expressed that the competition presents an expressive and compelling channel to exhibit Israel’s incredible people, locations and innovations. It will bring up an avenue for people of diverse origins, religions and ages to share how they derive inspiration from Israel. The contesting videos will be subjected to public voting after which the leading ten awards will be decided by a tribunal of several independent experts. The deadline for registration is on the 1st of February 2017 and the clips expected to be presented not later than 6th of March. The voting by the public will commence on March 20th and will proceed up to 29th of the same month. The winners of the contest will then be revealed on 30th April.
