Representatives with SubmitTheDocumentary.com announced today that it has officially launched a T-Shirt design contest as a fun way to bring increased awareness to cyberbullying while providing help to those who need it.
“Individuals with the best T-Shirt Design will win the right to have their bio and picture featured on our website and promoted on our social media networks,” said Kristin Matysik, marketing director for Submit The Documentary, a film that focuses on cyberbullying and solutions to the growing problem.
Matysik explained that the winner of the contest, which ends at 12 am July 1, will also have their design featured world-wide at its film screenings and film festivals.
“Voting will begin on July 8 via Facebook and voting closes at Midnight on July 12,” Matysik said, before adding, “Finalists may have friends and family vote at http://www.facebook.com/submitthedoc.”
The launching of the T-shirt design contest could prove to have perfect timing.
According to statistics from the I-SAFE that tracks cyber attacks, more than 1 in 3 young people have experienced cyber threats online and more than 25 percent of adolescents and teens have been bullied repeatedly through their cell phones or the Internet.
The film, which premiered at the 2013 Atlanta Film Festival, and won second place in the documentary category at the 2013 Buffalo Niagara Film Festivals, Matysik said, has two versions of the film: The Producer’s cut, which is 55 minutes long and the School version, which is 49 minutes long.
“This is an educational and informational film that focuses on cyberbullying and solutions to the growing problem and this contest is a just a fun way to get teens involved while driving more awareness to the problem and solution,” Matysik noted. “The film features experts, families, victims, students, and law enforcement.”
Part of the reason the contest was launched, according to Matysik, is due to the fact that cyberbullying affects many adolescents and teens on a daily basis.
Cyberbullying involves using technology, like cell phones and the Internet, to bully or harass another person. Cyberbullying can take many forms, such as sending mean messages or threats to a person's email account or cell phone or spreading rumors online or through texts.
“Over half of adolescents and teens have been bullied online, and about the same number have engaged in cyber bullying, so it affects a large amount of the US population, so we hope this contest will not only bring awareness about the film, but also the problem,” Matysik said.
