This year's Kerygma Awards will give away $6,000 to the best video about forgiveness. The contest has two categories for advertising and short films. It's only open young people between the ages of 17 and 25. Cash prizes will also be given to second and third place of 2000 and 1000 dollars each.
It's being held by the NGO “Showing Christianism” and the Villanueva University in Madrid.
Their idea was to encourage young people to come up with new ways of conveying the message of Benedict XVI. Entries can be submitted until March 12.
Last year's winners were the authors of this short Australian film called “The power of confession,” a story about the power of friendship based on real events.
The international contest receives submissions from around the world such as Israel, Chile, Spain, Italy and the United Kingdom.
