Burning Man is looking for videos that acculturate or educate the larger world about the 10 Principles of Burning Man and/or that teach Survival Guide basics, Burning Man history, and/or other important aspects of Burning Man culture.

So dust off those cameras and old-school Burning Man footage, or grab your friends and let the tape roll! Just create and send in your short films and video, being careful to adhere to the requirements listed on the Burning Man Video Acculturation Series Webpage. The contest will accept rolling submissions, and the first deadline is August 1, 2010.

Consider yourself invited to participate!

Possible Film Topics Include:

+ Acculturation: What do you wish you had known before you got to BRC?
+ Ten Principles: Illustrate or teach others about one or any of our principles!
+ History: Got a classic piece of video that illustrates a special piece of art, theme camp, or performance and why it matters to you?
+ “We Are Everywhere”: Burning Man happens every day, all over the world. How can you explain what Burning Man is beyond the week in the desert?
