The Video Contest is open annually to any student or amateur film maker ages 15-25 yrs old who is a resident of Montgomery, Harris, Grimes, Walker, Liberty, Waller, San Jacinto, and Fort Bend counties. The film can be from 30 seconds to 3 minutes in length. Each film must affirm in some way―even indirectly:
“Why laws need to protect innocent human life.”
1st Place – $1000
2nd Place = $500
3rd Place = $250
MCRTL began the Video Contest because we recognized the importance of having a strong message for Life on YouTube and throughout social media. Each year the videos do just that.
Students may further submit their entries to the National Right to Life Video Contest, where past local participants have done very well! In 2014, 2015, and 2017 MCRTL Video Contest students went on to win the NRTLC Video Contest. Three out of the five years that MCRTL has hosted the local Video Contest our winners have gone on to win the national competition. We have some great local talent!
The top 3 finalists of the national contest have their videos entered into the LifeFest Film Festival in Hollywood, California.
We encourage you to participate in this year’s 2019-20 contest which will launch at the start of the fall school term! To learn more, please watch the following video featuring two-time contest winner, Emily Callan:
