The contest, organized by the Media Awareness Network, was designed to help young people consider ways in which certain members of society are portrayed in the media and how audiences perceive and respond to these representations.

Using camcorders, digital video recorders, Web cams or cell phones, youth from across the country submitted two-minute video podcasts on the topic of media representation.
