You are invited to participate in the second annual MPA Pharmacy Feature Film Contest! Held in conjunction with the MPA Annual Convention & Exposition, this is a fun way to highlight various areas of pharmacy, utilize your creativity, and advocate for the profession of pharmacy and the Association. Each year, an established theme will help guide you in determining the focus of your video project. In addition to competing with other pharmacy professionals, colleges of pharmacy and local associations/regional societies to become the first or second place winner, through your participation, you can help us communicate the value of the pharmacist, the benefits of Association membership and professional involvement, and other key pharmacy-related topics. We encourage student pharmacist, pharmacy technician and pharmacist members as well as local associations/regional societies to take advantage of this unique opportunity!
This year’s contest theme is The Value of the Pharmacist or The Value of the Pharmacy Technician. Members are encouraged to create a video that educates the public and/or other health care providers about the value of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians. Suggestions are provided in the rules and instructions document, available online. Video submissions must be 90 seconds or less, relevant to this year’s theme, uploaded to YouTube and include the video tag “2015 MPA Pharmacy Feature Film Contest.” In addition, individuals or groups submitting a video must complete the appropriate forms included the rules and instructions document.
Video submissions are due by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 15, 2015. After the deadline, voting information will be shared with members in MPA E-news. Voting will occur online prior to the MPA Annual Convention & Exposition, Feb. 27-March 1, 2015, at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center. The video receiving the most votes will receive the first place prize of $150, and the video receiving the second highest number of votes will receive the second place prize of $50.
