You have one week left to enter the Sikh Coalition's Diversity Video Competition! You still have a chance to win $1,000, a free roundtrip ticket to New York (if you live in the United States), AND have your film premiered at the Sikh Art and Film Festival in October. So what are you waiting for? No film experience is required to participate, and people of all ages are encouraged to submit. All you need to do is submit a video (5 minutes or less) on the topic below:
Today in the United States, especially since the events of 9/11, the turban has been often associated with terrorist groups, including Osama Bin Laden, the Taliban, and others. However, the vast majority of people who wear turbans in the US are not terrorists, but Sikhs - and their appearance, although similar, often marks them for discrimination. Because of this appearance, Sikhs, as well as many minority groups in America have had to struggle to impart the message: you can't judge a book by its cover.
Referencing Sikh American and other minority experiences, please create a 5 minute video (or less) that explores the statement, "You can't judge a book by its cover."
