Want to be in our movie? We're looking for people to submit VIDEO CLIPS or photos of themselves showing their ALBANIAN PRIDE throughout the WORLD. The DUE DATE for all submissions is December 15, 2013 11:59pm PST.

OFFICIAL RULES: http://www.dearalbania.com/Contest/OfficialRules.pdf
OFFICIAL ENTRY FORM: http://woobox.com/hrs94w
One of the film's major themes is that Albanians remain proud of their country, even when they do not live within the country's borders. We want to show Albanians bringing Albanian pride to their own homes and communities around the world.
We need your help. We are looking for video or photos that will help tell this story.
Whether you live in Germany, Italy, Montenegro, Australia, Macedonia, or the US, we want to see how you keep the Albanian spirit alive no matter where you are.
WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR
Do you teach an Albanian Language course? Or take one? Show us your Albanian class.
Have you taught your grandchildren your favorite Albanian dances? Show us a clip of their performance.
Do you make Berek for your family dinners-- even if it's paired with local wine? Show us what your dinner table looks like.
Do you have pictures in your home of your parents or grandparents? Show us!
Where do you exhibit the Albanian double-headed eagle? Do you hang your Albanian flag on your brick faced Boston walk-up-- or inside the shop your parents have run for decades?
We prefer HD VIDEO submissions but we will also accept photos, particularly for vintage or older depictions of Albanian pride abroad. We want to see you in your element.
