PHILADELPHIA - Hep B Free Philadelphia, a citywide and community-owned education campaign led by the Hepatitis B Foundation to save lives and stop hepatitis B, is calling on the Greater Philadelphia community to participate in its "B A Hero" Public Service Announcement (PSA) Video Contest 2012. Interested participants are asked to create 30-second PSAs to raise awareness about hepatitis B.

There are three opportunities to submit PSAs about the subject of hepatitis B awareness in relation to the "B A Hero" theme. Deadlines are Feb. 17, 2012; Mar. 16, 2012; and Apr. 13, 2012 - no later than 11:59 p.m. EST. There will be three separate judging periods in which video submissions will be added to the Hep B Free Philadelphia Facebook page and Facebook users will have the opportunity vote on their favorite video. Three finalists will be identified and each will receive a prize of $100. The grand prize winner, selected by Hep B Free Philadelphia and Hepatitis B Foundation representatives, will receive an additional $150 and their PSA will be shown at the 2012 Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival and Hep B Free Philadelphia's annual media event.
