Make a Video, Make a difference…And you could Make some money!
The Centre for Spirituality and the Workplace at the Sobey School of Business, Saint Mary’s University in Halifax, Canada has launched a new video contest with prizes of $7,500, $3,500 & $2,000. (There is no cost to enter.)
- Make a short video about what spirituality and work is or how you would promote it in the workplace. Make a creative case for spirituality in the workplace that involves, invites and inspires. The video can be about work and spirit, work and spirituality, or work and faith.
- The purpose of the contest is to forward the Centre’s purpose: “Positively and strategically influencing the conversation and accomplishments about spirituality and the workplace globally.”
Why this contest?
Work for many people is a place where they lose their soul, where they give up there spirit when they walk in the door in the morning. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Work can be a place that nourishes the soul for both you and those you come into contact with. This contest has been set up to support a new kind of workplace. We don’t mean spirituality from a proselytizing point of view, from a ‘We’ve got the answer’ perspective. Nobody wants that. When we say spirituality in the workplace we don’t mean it as the answer but as an on-going question or inquiry. We mean it in an organic, expansive way. Make a video and tell us what spirituality in the workplace is for you, how you would encourage it, support it and nourish it.
There’s also a Google Translate button on the site (under the Centre logo) so any non-English speaker can immediately see the entire site in their native language.
All the instructions and rules are on the web-site: www.spiritatworkcreativevideo.com
We look forward to your video making a difference all around the world!
