We are looking for videos about why YOU should introduce one of the keynote speakers at the ACRL 2015 conference. Choose your favorite keynote speaker (G. Willow Wilson, Jad Abumrad, or Lawrence Lessig) and submit a video about why you would be the best choice to introduce that person. Are you a comic-book-crazed member of the Kamala core? Is your iPod jammed full of Radiolab podcasts? Do copyright restrictions make you foam at the mouth? Video entries should be no more than 3 minutes in length in any format you like. Have fun with it and be creative! Tell us what inspires you about this person, and why you’d do their introduction justice.
If selected, you’ll be invited to introduce the keynote on stage at the conference in Portland, Oregon. You’ll prepare and present an introduction that is about 3 minutes in length (but absolutely no longer than 5 minutes) to an audience of approximately 3,000 of your academic peers and colleagues. You will also receive…
- The chance to meet your idol! Imagine yourself hanging out backstage rubbing elbows…
- An invitation to the exclusive ACRL 2015 Chairs’ reception at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry on Thursday, March 26.
- Serious fun and laughs, glory and fame, and a great cocktail party story for years to come.
To enter, simply post your video online (using YouTube or any way that is most convenient for you), tag it with acrl2015 and complete the very brief Keynote Introduction Submission Form. The deadline for entries if 11:59 pm central on November 21, 2014. No late entries will be accepted.
