Is that your video on TV? Think you have what it takes to make it to primetime? Prove it!

In this year’s 10th Annual PSAid competition, winning Public Service Announcement (PSA) submissions will have the chance to air on NFL games and popular shows like Once Upon A Time, The Bachelor, Family Guy and Dr. Phil.

Since its inception in 2008, PSAid videos have been aired by 865 TV and cable stations in the US to a total estimated audience (“audience impressions”) of 771,231,580.  The number of actual broadcasts since the contest’s beginning in 2008 is 79,620!

PSAid contestants are encouraged to submit compelling and aesthetically creative print or video PSAs encouraging Americans to practice Smart Compassion when helping people affected by emergencies overseas by providing monetary donations to proven relief organizations. The USAID’s Center for International Disaster Information (USAID CIDI) informs the public that cash donations are less expensive for donors and more beneficial to recipients than are material donations.

It’s simple: save lives, save money—send cash.
