Video CameraVideo arguably is the most powerful form of communication because of its use of multiple senses and ability to reach the viewer intellectually and emotionally. We have developed a video contest to help the Pro-life message spread further than just typical thesis projects which seldom get read outside of the writer and judge. We have developed two categories for this contest.
