‘Family Values’ Wins Project Pushback Video Contest


I mentioned a while back that I was a finalist judge (1 of 15) for Project Pushback, a video contest searching for "New Messages for the Freedom to Marry". There were 11 finalists, 68 entries, more than 60,000 viewings of the videos, and 6,300 votes from the public.

Of all the finalists, this video, Family Values, which is certainly one of the most straightforward of the bunch, was at the top of my list. I'm happy to see that others agreed.

Andrew Putschoegl, its creator, won the $2,500 grand prize. The $1,000 People's Choice Award winner was Blaire Wedding Project, created by Samantha Lavin and Lori Brener.

Watch Family Values, AFTER THE JUMP...
