New Video Contest. And Microsoft Support

Microsoft Nigeria announced additional support for the project in November 2011, to support campaign activities, including a Video Contest, Roundtable Discussion and Courtesy Visits. The Video Contest seeks entries from young Nigerians who will be asked to respond to a question: How Can Nigeria Tackle Cybercrime Effectively? The Roundtable Discussion will hold in Abuja, to discuss the new draft cybercrime bill that was developed by a committee drawn across various government departments. This will also be supported by Courtesy Visits by young participants, selected from the pool of Video Contest entries, who will visit the National Assembly and other stakeholders. The best of the video entries will be screened at the offices of the hosts (and posted online), along with a letter requesting for their support towards the success of a firm and fair cybercrime legislation that will also empower at-risk youth with adequate ICT skills and opportunities.

Building on the success of the online version of MISSPIN's Maga No Need Pay video (over 213,000 views via, and considering the need for youth-focused and citizen-created content on the subject, the contest seeks for short videos (up to 5 minutes long) that can come in any form that will capture audiences and deliver on the question: How Can Nigeria Tackle Cybercrime Effectively? Participants, who must be between the ages of 15 and 28, and resident in Nigeria, are required to post their videos online and then send a link to info[at], or send a CD/DVD to PIN (via P. O. Box 51899 Ikoyi) before 5pm on December 7, 2011. Participants who submit the best five entries will be invited to join the National Assembly visit, and all their costs will be covered.
