Monthly Video Challenge

MAY CHALLENGE WINNER

All in this together! Working remotely? Homeschooling? Sewing masks? Cooking feasts? Walking the dog, AGAIN? How are you managing life in the time of COVID-19? Let the creative spirit help you make the best of it by creating a video about your experience. “All in this together!” begins April 21st and the winner will be announced on May 21st.

Congratulations to Henry (@That_One_Guy), for winning the “All In This Together” Monthly Video Challenge! Henry’s video was able to bring joy to the Latinx21 community during a very uncertain time in history. Not even the pandemic could break down the creativity that many of our members possess.
 
Henry’s video submission “Fountain of Wayne – Mexican Wine Instrumental Cover” was created in honor of the bass player of Fountains of Wayne, who recently passed away in April due to COVID-19, showcasing the hard realities that American couples face.

APRIL CHALLENGE WINNER

Make Latinx21 laugh! Whatever that means to you, post your video on your Latinx21 account for a chance to win the April prize!

Congratulations to Samantha Cavalcanti (Samcaval), winner of the Make Latinx21 Laugh Monthly Video Challenge! Samantha’s video, “Waiting for My Amazon Package,” is a surprising dig at the delivery and entertainment giant. The short film is rooted in her support of local businesses and disdain for mega-companies such as Amazon.

Samantha was born in Salvador, Brazil, lives in Los Angeles, loves photography and writing, and hopes to have a feature screenplay she wrote produced.

MARCH CHALLENGE WINNER

Show off your creativity! Do you dance, sing, paint, play a trombone, or walk a tightrope? Or, are you a fan of someone who does? This month, our challenge will honor a video celebrating an extraordinary talent. 

Congratulations to @marcella_muci & @jessiet_13, winners of the Show Off Your Creativity Challenge!

Their video entry, Contigo (With You), was inspired by their love for animation, their love for dogs, and most importantly their hope of encouraging others to adopt a pet instead of shopping for them.
