The video essay has been the theme of this week at OU, where we’ve been lucky to have John Bresland as our visiting writer. (He is AMAZING. Generous, brilliant, insightful… and, of course, kind of scary.) I’ve left the week with a full understanding that I don’t have the chops to produce a video essay (but with the determination to learn some new skills), but I’m sure some of you do. If so, this contest is for you!

BREVITY's Nonfiction Blog

CheeseIron Horse Literary Review has announced its first annual Video Competition, with generous prize money:

We’re looking for digital essays, stories, and poems—videos that combine visual art and sound with original written texts in artistically beautiful ways. This is a relatively new form, but already some great examples have been published. Check out the links below to see some great video compositions in Rattapallax and TriQuarterly. You don’t need any better submission guidelines than these examples from two great journals.​

The winner will receive $400; and one finalist will receive $150. We will publish the winning video and the finalist on our Web site and in an upcoming DVD issue, and we will screen both videos at the Spring 2013 Iron Horse Gala in April.
