The Council of PR Firms is proud to announce the second annual Take Flight with PR Video Contest. We will be searching for the video that most creatively answers the prompt:

“What is your dream PR assignment? Tell us in a short video of no longer than three minutes. You may, for example, decide to showcase an important social cause, or a favorite restaurant, a brand or musical band. Be creative… and tell us how you would make your story take flight!”

While the video cannot exceed three minutes, as long as it effectively finishes the sentence above it can be as short as 15, 20 or 30 seconds. Just be creative!

Choose an interest, idea or passion, and show in your video how you would communicate this story, to a specific or broad target audience.

Submissions will be evaluated on creativity, storytelling and best response to contest prompt.
