Public health professionals are not always the best at taking a moment to pat ourselves on the back for a job well done. However, we hear repeatedly from our members that learning about the work of colleagues around the state is one of the member benefits they enjoy. The solution? Let MPHA share your great work by taking part in our 2016 Sizzle Reel!
We invite you to share one of your organization’s biggest public health accomplishments at the MPHA Annual Conference. This is the perfect opportunity to highlight programs and policies that work throughout Maine in an engaging format. What is a Sizzle Reel, you ask? It’s a form of promotional advertising that sums up a target message in a short video set to music.
What We Need From You to Participate
Option A: Send us a short video* that highlights your organization’s public health success in 2015/2016. We will choose the best 20 seconds from your video, or you can choose the 20 seconds you’d like us to use by only sending us a 20 second clip!
Option B: Send us still photos** that depict your organization’s greatest moments of 2015/2016, with a typed script that we will audio record (voice-over) for you. Make sure not to put text directly on the photo!
It is very important that you secure any video or photo release waivers if your materials require them. This video WILL be made public and you are responsible for obtaining any permissions needed.
All materials must be sent to MPHA at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than August 19, 2016. But don’t wait – the earlier, the better!
If you have any questions or want help with ideas, email us!
