PBS hits Vancouver for video contest help

Posted by Rob Lewis

The folks at the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) have engaged Vancouver's memelabs to run their YOUR PBS Video Contest.

PBS isn't just for your parents anymore. It’s for you. It’s YOURS! And that’s why we want to hear about YOUR PBS in a short video.

At PBS.org, you can watch your favorite PBS shows on the new video player, in their entirety, whenever you want. You can interact with PBS producers and talent through live chats. Or you can get up close and personal with your favorite shows through blogs, Facebook Fan Pages, Twitter and YouTube.

The Associated Press said "PBS may be cooler than you think." Check out our online offerings and see if you agree. Then SHOW us what you think.  Create a 30 second video showing something surprising about PBS on the web.

With the YOUR PBS Video Contest, PBS wants to know what has been the most surprising thing you’ve found at PBS.org? Was it the breadth of web content on PBS.org or a conversation you struck up through PBS’s Twitter or Facebook areas? Have you been floored by what you can do and discover with PBS on iTunes or elsewhere on the Web?

The contest has some cool prizes but I won't go into those as they're only available to US residents.

Check out the second Vancouver connection in this story below - the introductory video was created by Vancouver's Giant Ant Media. They're good.
