This Year’s Theme:

What does the Internet mean to you?

Many of us think about, worry, and praise the way the Internet has impacted the world – for people young and old, for better or worse, now and in the future.  But what do you think?  What role does the Internet play in your life?  What do you do differently because of it?  How do you interact with others because of it?  Can’t stand it?  Can’t live without it?  Are you indifferent to it?

Have an answer? Then get a camera, and tell us your story!  We want to know!

Be funny.  Be dramatic.  Be creative.  Use live action, stop action, animation, music or none.  Whatever you do, be real.

While you could possibly win one of our great prizes, we may also choose some of the most helpful and creative entries to include in a place online for the world to see.
