Fresh sheet: Submit strange, humorous to GMO Film Contest

Wed., Oct. 23, 2013, midnight

Mutants for Monsanto are offering prizes for videos about genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.

Videos should be up to five minutes, placed on YouTube, and sent to Mutants for Monsanto via email before 11:59 p.m. Oct. 30.

They should also “be as strange and humorous as possible,” according to a website about the event. Participants will be entered to win a free chicken, up to $500, and a “Certificate of Brilliance.”

The group formed when Initiative 522, which would mandate labeling of GMOs sold in Washington state, qualified to appear on the Nov. 5 ballot.

Top videos will be screened – and winners announced – from 7 to 9 p.m. Oct. 31 at the Magic Lantern Theatre, 25 W. Main Ave.

Admission is free. For more information, or to send a submission, contact incaafterdark.scc. or call (509) 279-6030 or (800) 248-5644, ext. 6030. The class costs $50.
