Council on Foundations Invites Entries for Film & Video Festival
Deadline: June 27, 2008
The Council on Foundations ( http://www.cof.org/ ) and Grantmakers in Film + Electronic Media ( http://www.gfem.org/ ) are seeking submissions of films and videos for the Council on Foundations' 42nd Annual Film & Video Festival, to be held May 4-6, 2009, in Atlanta, Georgia.
To be eligible, projects must have received full or partial funding for either production or distribution from a private, community, operating, or corporate foundation; a corporate giving program; or a donor network. The grantmaker does not have to be a member of the Council on Foundations or GFEM. The council will not consider submissions that have been funded solely by public agencies or federal or state grants.
The films and videos must have been completed within the past two years. Works may be of any length -- from feature length to a brief public service announcement. No works in progress will be con- sidered. Organizations and filmmakers may submit as many film and video projects as they wish. Each entry must be accompanied by a check in the amount of $60 payable to the Council on Foundations. (The fee helps cover a portion of the program's administrative expenses.)

L'Oreal Paris Celebrates Community Achievement and Volunteerism With Annual Women of Worth Program
Deadline: June 16, 2008
L'Oreal Paris ( http://www.lorealparis.com/ ) has announced that it will continue to recognize and support women who actively serve others in their communities with its third annual Women of Worth grassroots awards program. The initiative honors and awards women from across the United States for their inspiring volunteer work and community enrichment initiatives. This year, ten Women of Worth honorees will each receive $5,000 for their nonprofit causes and a $5,000 donation will be made on their behalf benefiting ovarian cancer research and awareness initiatives, the philanthropy of record for L'Oreal Paris.
In addition, one National Honoree will be chosen via a public vote this fall on the Women of Worth Web site and will receive a $25,000 donation to her nonprofit organization. To date, the L'Oreal Paris Women of Worth initiative has recognized twenty women nationwide for their outstanding commitment to their causes -- ranging from improving literacy, to protecting the environment, to raising awareness of female health issues.
To be eligible, a nominee must be a woman 18 years of age or older; have a record of exemplary service within her community and the community at large; be able to demonstrate the impact of her work within her community; be aspirational and inspirational to others; demonstrate commitment to her cause; exemplify leadership; and be non-compensated.
