Make Talk Work International Video Competition

image The City University of New York Dispute Resolution Consortium (CUNY DRC) at John Jay College of Criminal Justice-CUNY, has just announced an international competition for short videos of up to 60 seconds using any of the themes in the 24 Make Talk Work bookmarks they have developed. This video project, which is funded by the JAMS Foundation, seeks to increase public awareness about dispute resolution. The bookmarks, also funded by the JAMS Foundation, were created by the CUNY DRC and dispute resolvers in New York City with images designed by Susan Spivack.

The videos must demonstrate how universal messages about handling conflicts can be shared with people from all walks of life. Each of the 24 bookmarks, which must be used as the basis for this video competition, contains a message that can be visually illustrated through video.

The bookmarks can be viewed at the CUNY DRC website at

Prizes ranging from $100 to $2,000 will be awarded for the winning videos. The winning videos will be premiered at a film festival and award reception at John Jay College near Lincoln Center in New York City . The winning videos will be posted on YouTube and the CUNY DRC’s websites and will be made available for workshops, conferences and public events.  Entries are due by April 1, 2008. See the full submission guidelines for more information.
