120 Seconds Contest - CLOSEDCompetition Status
Competition is currently CLOSED and judging is in process. Currently has 30 entries. Current prize fun is estimated to be worth around $150 US.
For BurdenedHearts' first competition we wanted to do something really special and unique.
So what do you have to do?
Produce a speech on either a global issue or a personal issue no longer than 2 minutes (120 seconds).
Recently we asked you what you would talk about if you could make a 30 second speech to the whole world - and one of our incredible team members (MotleyDreams) suggested we challenge people to actually produce those speeches, but we gave you a little more time ;]
So, you have 120 seconds to speak to the whole world. What issue would you address? What is important to you? Consider use of technical devices to make your message clear and persuasive. Think about a global audience and how relevant your message would be internationally.
