A PSA (Public Service Announcement) can greatly impact the audience of what the PSA is about and the main solution to the problem described in the PSA. A PSA has the potential to change someone's way the act or think of the situation presented in the PSA, if the message is powerful enough. If it is, then they will be persuaded into changing their ways to help themselves and the people that are involved in the problem the PSA illustrates. What I am hoping to accomplish in this project is to create a public service announcement is to display the problems that we all endure throughout our lives and the lives that others have problems with. What I am presenting to people is how to evade being bitten by mosquitoes, and possibly catching infectious diseases and serious mosquito-borne illnesses. That is one of few reasons why my audience should care about this, and for the most important reason possible.
Olelo Community Media is Oahu's non-profit community Public, Education, and Government (PEG) access provider created to empower the voice of the community. As of the year 2017, they are currently hosting a contest that I am participating in to create a PSA (Public Service Announcement) about one of the selected topics they have provided. There are rules to follow this contest like these three, important rules; 1. Mandatory: All entries must focus on an Issue that affects our community, our state, or the world., 8. The video must have been shot and edited between March 1, 2017 and February 28, 2018. The video must have been written, produced, shot, and edited by the student(s); adults or faculty input must be purely advisory., and specifically for PSA's, a commercial length, informative, but concise video about an issue. (30 second maximum, production credit or acknowledgement graphics do not count as part of the 30 second maximum.) These three rules are the most important for the PSA portion of the contest, and they should not be overlooked for the reason being that it must be applied to you and your team's production and script of the PSA. There are many opportunities for Media students to earn awards, scholarships, and prize money, because it can help the person who wins the competition a chance to go to college with the scholarship they earned from this contest. What I think is that the people who benefit the most from the contests, would be the organizations involved. The reason being that the organizations involved in the contests spend the time and effort to set up and open the contest to all available applicants, and then judge through every single one of the entries they've received to declare the winner of it all.
