WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 15, 2014) – Media Rise  released the final video submissions created for the 2014 Media Rise Festival’s 48-Hour Video Challenge, a weekend competition, inviting filmmakers to create high-impact, high-quality videos for local nonprofits in just two days. The challenge concluded with a film screening at the Thurgood Marshall Center to acknowledge the winning filmmakers, chosen by a panel of judges and supported with a cash prize sponsored by the Office of Motion Picture and Television Development.

Congratulations to the winning team – Amy Richards, Jeffrey Buras and Abby Pierce – who took home a prize of $600 for successfully shootingediting & delivering a 3-minute video in just two days for Art All Night, an annual arts festival in D.C. founded by creative producer Ariana Austin.

The winning video was chosen by a panel of judges, representing social innovation in media:

Beverly Schwartz, VP, Global Marketing, Ashoka
