Contest Brief

Black Speaks is a Black Business Network that provides resources to Black Businesses. Our goal is to help foster the creation of more black-owned businesses. We want you to make a video where you are talking to the camera. The video should be quick, preferably less than 5 or 10 minutes. We care less about the length and more about the quality of the video. Explain to the viewer the following:
1. What does black business ownership means to you?
2. How would having more black owned businesses in the world positively affect your life?

Note: There will most likely be multiple winners for this project, as we expect multiple entries.

    How many more do you want? Also should the rest be done in this way or an interview like manner with two people in the frame.

      Either this way or in an interview like manner is fine. iIt would be good if the interviewer were handing the person being interviewed a microphone or something to speak into. But, do whatever makes the video looks best. Message me, I am awarding you the project. I want you to interview more Ghanaians. We want you to do more of these type of videos, but with: 1. Better audio quality 2. With a Ghanaian who has either less of an accent (speaks clearer English) or speaks in their native language with English subtitles. We want to hear what they think .

      Hi Patrick! We have extended the deadline for the videos by 5 days to give you time to finish your project. Please note that the payment is "per video" so please submit each video as a separate entry. I don't have the answers. That's why I'm crowdsourcing. I'm curious. I want you to find the answers. Each answer is a potential award. You have to go out and ask a person of Black/African decent these 2 questions and record their answer. So, if you get 10 answers, that's 10 potential awards. 10 * 25 = $250.
