In this time of crisis, suffering and death, everyone must step up and do their part. We are excited to call upon the DC community to educate us to wear masks to protect ourselves and others and to always practice physical distancing. #iMask4DC will remind, refresh the message, and engage the community in taking direct and immediate action necessary to reduce the community spread of COVID-19.
The Black Coalition Against Covid-19 in partnership with THEARC Theater, Howard University’s Department of Theatre Arts, The Washington Informer Newspaper, WHUR and WPFW radio stations, are working to engage everyone in creative messaging to help reduce the community spread of COVID-19.
The Black Coalition Against COVID-19 is launching the #iMask4DC video festival and competition. To participate we are asking you to produce a thirty second video that emphasizes to the community the importance of wearing a mask consistently when outdoors and exposed to other people.
The competition is open to all—individuals and families. Beginning June 9th, online workshops will be available for anyone who needs help. All videos must be submitted by noon on June 20th .
The #iMask4DC Video Festival will award cash prizes to winning entries and the most compelling stories will be shown on Instagram and Facebook Live during a city-wide social media event. Winners will be showcased on social media and may be invited to participate in other press engagements.
