    Diversity Video Competition Winner!
    Over 850 public votes were cast to determine the winner of this year's Diversity Video Competition! Gulshan Singh takes home first place with his film, "Let It Out". This film will be premiered at the Sikh Art and Film Festival [ http://www.sikharts.com/ ] in New York City next month. The second place winner is Jasleen Kaur with her film, "I Will Stand Up". The Sikh Coalition also wants to recognize David Woo for his compelling portrayal of "Neel", a victim of school bullying and has decided to award a third place prize of $250 to
    David Woo.

    1st Place- $1000 "Let It Out" by Gulshan Singh
    2nd Place-$500
    "I Will Stand Up" By Jasleen Kaur
    3rd Place- $250
    "Neel" by David Woo

    Each video tells a compelling story in a different way. They each help people understand how Sikh students are affected by bullying. The Coalition will utilize these videos in its education work in order to bring to light this growing and serious problem for all students. If you haven't yet seen the videos in this year's competition, please click here [ http://www.sikhcoalition.org/Video_Competition.asp ].

    A panel of judges reviewed all submissions received and narrowed down the videos to the top three. These judges used a 10-point criterion that was broken into 4 categories -- creativity, message, versatility, and quality of the production. We would like to thank Paul Johar, Kevin Lee, and Jasmeet Singh (JusReign) [ http://sikhcoalition.org/Video_Competition.asp ] for volunteering their time and expert opinion as judges for this competition.

    The Coalition would like to thank the Sikh Art and Film Foundation [ http://www.sikharts.com/ ] for their partnership throughout the competition.

    Special thanks also goes to Tej Singh Hazra and HSBC Bank Canada for their support of this initiative.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
