On November 6, 2013 in New York, Reason announced the winners of the first-ever Reason Video Prize, which honors short-form video, film, and moving pictures that explore, investigate, and enrich our appreciation of libertarian beliefs in individual rights, limited government, and especially human possibilities.
Top honors - and $7,000 - went to Drew Tidwell's "I, Pencil," produced for the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Second place ($2,000) went to Justin Monticello's "Obama That I Used to Know," and third place ($1,000) went to Isaac Reese's "Game of Food Trucks," produced for the Institute for Justice.
The other finalists were "Top DHS Checkpoint Refusals," produced by Mike Mills, and "Chrony Chronicles: I Want to Grow Up to be a Crony," by Owen Brennan, Justin Folk, and Robert Perkins.
Congratulations to all the finalists and thanks all who entered the competition.
