Tell us "Why Naturopathic Medicine?" and "Why CCNM?" and you could win a grand prize of $3,000!

We want to know why you think people should study Naturopathic Medicine
and, more specifically, study at CCNM.

How will this work?

Submit your video to us through the official entry form (located at http://www.ccnm.edu/video_entry_form) March 1, 2013 until April 5, 2013.

The qualifying videos will then be put to a public vote on our website beginning April 9 - 15. (That will be the time to promote your video and tell everyone to vote for you!) Our judges will pick the winners from the top 5 videos.The winner will be announced by April 19.

The first place video will win $3,000
The second place video will win $1,500
The third place video will win $500

What you need to do:

What you can do:

  • Talk about:
    • Our awesome staff and faculty
    • The Paracelsus Herb Garden (when it melts), residence, cafeteria, fitness centre, LRC, etc.
    • The Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic
    • Student life, such as the NSA, clubs, formal, etc.
    • Why YOU chose CCNM!
    These are ONLY suggestions to help you get started, and you can choose to talk about them or not!

  • Work by yourself or with a group. (Only one prize will be given per entry; it will be up to you to divide it.)

What you can't do:

  • Use ANY copyrighted work in your video that does not belong to you (including pictures, videos, and music). Free-license, creative commons, and out-of-copyright material is acceptable. Laws vary from country to country and medium to medium, so check carefully if you choose to go this route.
  • Depict patients in any way. No hallway shots with patients in it, no waiting room shots, etc. Even if the patient agrees, the video will be disqualified.
  • Directly make comparisons with other naturopathic schools. (If in doubt, email and ask Patti Scott at pscott@ccnm.edu)
  • Participate in more than one group to have a go at the prize

Why is this contest happening?

We wanted to make a recruitment video, and we thought who better to tell prospective students about CCNM than students of CCNM? Plus it's fun, and an excuse to give away some nice prizes.

When is stuff happening again?

The contest opens on March 01, 2013 at 9 a.m. That is when video submissions will be accepted on this website.
The submission period ends on April 05, 2013 at 5 p.m. No entries will be accepted after that time.
The submissions will be reviewed for qualification (adherence to the rules), and then qualifying entries will be put to public vote.
The public voting will begin on April 09, 2013 until April 15, 2013.
The judges will review the top 5 videos and select the winners.
The winners will be announced by April 19, 2013.
