    The Coalition hopes to leverage these two videos to highlight stereotypes, discrimination and civil rights issues through an artistic lens. The Coalition plans to use these two videos to dispel misconceptions about Sikhs and other minority groups. You can view the winning videos here.

    A panel of judges reviewed all submissions received and narrowed down the videos to the top two. These judges used an 11-point criteria that was broken into 4 categories -- creativity, message, versatility, and quality of the production. We would like to thank both Paul Johar and Kevin Lee for volunteering their time and expert opinion as judges for this competition.

    The Coalition would like to thank the Sikh Art and Film Foundation for their partnership throughout the competition. The Coalition would also like to thank SikhNet for all their guidance and help with promotion.
