The Opticians Association of America (OAA), in a partnership with Transitions Optical, is hosting a video contest to help define opticianry.  The contest is simple – create your own 30 to 90 second video conveying to a consumer what opticians are and what they do.  The Video Contest is open to all students, state associations, film makers and any individual residing in the United States of America.  The winners of the contest will be announced at the 2014 International Vision Expo West in Las Vegas, Nevada.  The winning video will receive $3,500; second place will win $2,000; and third place will receive $1,000.


The contest runs from April 17, 2014 through July 18, 2014.  The creative and informative videos will be uploaded to the OAA YouTube Channel during the contest and then reviewed by a panel of celebrity judges who will ultimately pick the top three videos.
