It’s that time of the year again—the third annual Sparky Awards invite contestants to submit videos under two minutes that imaginatively portray the benefits of open access.
The Grand Prize winner will receive a cash prize of $1,000 along with a Sparky Award statuette, a copy of Final Cut Studio, and an iPod Nano. The Runner Up and People’s Choice Award winners will each receive $500 cool ones.
