Faith Counts, an interfaith coalition that promotes the value of faith in society and includes The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is holding a video contest where the grand prize winner will receive $20,000. The fan favorite will receive $10,000 and the honorable mention will receive $2,500.
The guidelines are simple. Faith Counts is asking people, in two minutes or less, to explain why faith matters to them. "What does the world look like through your unique lens of faith? Pull out your phone, grab your camera gear, tape record, and show us in two minutes or less how faith changes lives, relationships, and communities for the better," their website states. "Faith is a living, breathing, life-lifting, incredible thing vital to today’s culture in its many forms. The fruits of faith are still fresh today."
Gathering perspectives from many faiths, the contest will look at how faith improves the lives of diverse people throughout the world. Not only will participants be able to submit their own videos but they will also be able to vote on the top 10 videos that will be announced June 26 on faithcounts.com to determine which video is the fan favorite.
This contest provides a wonderful opportunity for Latter-day Saints to lend their voices to the conversation of how their faith blesses, uplifts, shapes, and changes their lives.
