This year’s CPAC Video Contest saw a great number of submissions with a variety of takes on the value of public services, and how essential these services are to communities and the individuals within them. The judges were impressed by all entries, and want to thank everyone who submitted to the contest.

Below you’ll find the list of winners. Congratulations to everyone, and a special congratulations to Holli-Lynne Elash whose video, “There are Truths that are Lies”, won top honours. Holli-Lynne and her team created a video in the style of spoken word, addressing the disparities between the lives of high and low-income earners, and the “lies” of the austerity/prosperity debate.
