Vote for your favorite Israel video

The “Inspired by Israel” video contest has started its 10-day period of online voting to determine which 10 video entrants will move on to the final phase of the contest and be evaluated by an elite panel of judges. Last year, hundreds of thousands of people around the world voted.

More than 80 individuals and groups entered the contest by creating videos that entertain, educate and inspire people about Israel. A total of $20,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the winning videos, including an $8,000 grand prize.

Some examples of video titles are: “The Israeli heart and mind just transformed the lives of 1 million Africans forever”; “One Million Reasons You Should Love Israel”; “An anti-Semite visits Israel and discovers something completely shocking”; “If you thought the world could exist without Israel, you’re about to be proven wrong” and “Israel: A Light in the Storm.”

Following this period of public voting, which ends on March 29, the top 10 prizes will be selected by a panel of independent experts, including philanthropist Gila Milstein, Jewish Journal/Tribe Media President David Suissa and StandWithUs Israel Executive Director Michael Dickson. The winners will be announced on April 30.

Hosted on, the contest is sponsored by the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation in partnership with the 12Tribe Films Foundation.
