1 DAY, 24 HOURS, 34 MILLION LIVES...
CBC INVITES CANADIANS TO BE PART OF AN
UNPRECEDENTED 1 DAY DOCUMENTARY
To kick off its 75th anniversary celebration, CBC and Radio-Canada will lead what promises to be a fascinating look into a single day in the life of this remarkable country. We've been telling your stories for the past 75 years, and for our anniversary, we will produce a two-hour documentary. To help celebrate, we want you to help us tell the unique story of one day in the life of our country.
For some, it will be just another day. For others, it will be a day they'll never forget. Our goal is to capture--with the help of Canadians--an unprecedented look at life in our country, through the eyes and lenses of people all over Canada: beautiful or bleak, happy or sad, but above all else, real.
1 DAY/1 JOUR will not only be powerful, enlightening and entertaining--it will also be tremendously unifying, as it will bring Canadians from coast to coast together through their shared experience on a single day.
Personal video contributions shot over the 24 hours of April 30 can be submitted for possible inclusion in the final productions (in whole or in part) through CBC.ca/1day. Entries will be accepted from filming day (April 30) through May 24. Content can be submitted to either the 1 DAY (English) or 1 JOUR (French) production websites, but submissions could be used in both final films. The video submitted by Canadians will complement footage shot by CBC/Radio-Canada crews across the country that day and will be posted on our website for all to enjoy.
One personal video from each site will be chosen by a panel of judges as the overall "Best Video Submission." Creators of the winning entries will receive great prizes such as an Apple iPad 2 and a trip for two to the respective World Premiere screenings this summer in Toronto and Montreal.
Full contest rules and regulations are available at CBC.ca/1day.
