2009 GET SCREENED! Video Contest Winners

Congratulations to the grand-prize winner and four talented runners-up in Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center’s first-ever Get Screened! video contest. Each video answers a nationwide creative challenge that we issued to moviemakers last fall: Help us shine a spotlight on the importance of colorectal-cancer screening. 

Our judges’ grand-prize pick takes viewers on two parallel journeys that illustrate the potentially tragic consequences of failing to get screened for colon cancer—and the benefits of getting checked.

The other winning videos, which range from 30- to 60-seconds in length, feature a stirring survivorship story, a probing puppet, a photo collage and a sinister character named “Colon Polyp.” A small panel of community judges selected the winners in late March from a group of 15 finalists.

Thanks again to all of our entrants, who spanned 18 states and the District of Columbia, for making the Get Screened! contest a success.
