Cash Awards for Sanjaya Impression Videos

Share Article

Film Festival will pay cash prizes and publicize winning entries.

It's come to this.

The Crystal Awards Film Festival will award cash prizes and lots of free publicity to videos which impersonate, lampoon or even honor famed American Idol contestant Sanjaya.

Love him or hate him, there's no denying that the Indian-American crooner has created quite a stir on the popular TV talent show. The general consensus seems to be that only public sentiment kept him in the running long after the show's judges (and most critics) would have eliminated him.

To be successful, videos should be short (please!) and to the point. It's not necessary to 'impersonate' Sanjaya; an 'impression' can also be a video which successfully uses him as a reference point to say something meaningful about the American Idol phenomenon or even about pop culture.

Winning videos will be publicized on hundreds of blogs, RSS feeds, social networking sites, search engines and partner sites. Who knows, winners may end up being more famous than Sanjaya himself.

Complete instructions for submitting videos can be found on the Crystal Awards site.
