“A Mother’s Dream” is the first-place winner of the 2013 National Right To Life video contest. It was submitted by Joshua Rapavi, a Marquette native who is a student at Northern Michigan University.
The NRTL’s annual video contest is open to any amateur film maker/student ages 15 through 25. The film can be from 30 seconds to 3 minutes in length. Each film must affirm in some way–even indirectly–“Why laws need to protect innocent human life.”NRL News editor Dave Andrusko, in announcing this year’s winning video, said, “We hope you find it as powerful as we did.”
Aspiring filmmakers who would like to submit an entry in next year’s competition: The time frame for the 2014 contest will begin on September 1, 2013, with a mid-April deadline for entry to NRLC. The same rules apply, and winners of the contest will be guaranteed acceptance to the Life Fest Film Festival in Hollywood, California with all fees waived. The national winner will be judged and selected at Life Fest and then shown at NRLC 2014.
