Wannabe Pop Stars Wanted!
It’s our 20th Anniversary and we want to get everybody involved and having fun! That’s why we’re running a new video competition to sing and shout (and maybe dance) about being vegetarian or vegan! All you have to do to enter is come up with a veggie/vegan song (change the lyrics of your favourite song to promote veggie/veganism!) and make a video – dancing, concept art, just you having a good old sing; anything you want!
Have a look at the excellent Kizz & Cazz video ‘Vegan and You Know It’
...and two great young sisters, Leia 10 and Esme Tiger Byrne,8 of Poynton, Cheshire who joined in the fun with their own video:
All are great examples of what we want to see! They don’t have to be pop songs, however, if reggae or rock float your boat.
Once you’ve made your superstar video, upload it to YouTube (you can upload it privately so nobody but us will see if you want!) or send it to us on a disc in the post. We’ve got some very special guest judges including BBC TV presenter and singer Sarah Jane Honeywell, Jeremy Cunningham of The Levellers, Cazz of Kizz and Cazz and Viva!'s founder, Juliet who will pick their favourites to win later on in the year! Apart from publicity on Viva!'s web and social media pages, there’ll be prizes to be had too, with £50 worth of Viva! merch going to entrants – imagine how much chocolate that could buy…
Entries will be divided into the age categories: Under 8 years; 8-11; 12-14; 15-18 and over 18s. Send your entries by 12 September 2014.
So get filming and singing! To check out more videos or to find out more information on how to send your entry to us, head to www.viva.org.uk/videoentry
