TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 25, 2014) - The three finalists in the fourth annual Rule the Tube CPA video competition have been announced and now all eyes turn to April 4 when the voting stops and the winners are announced.
Ontario post-secondary and high school students were given a chance to bring out their inner video auteur – whether it's Christopher Nolan serious or Will Ferrell funny – in the Rule the Tube CPA video competition. The theme is "Why Chartered Professional Accountants Rule the World of Business" and the winning entry will get $1,500 in addition to the obvious fame and glory.
"We're giving students a chance to show-off their video-making skills and compete for cash, while at the same time they are learning about and promoting the CPA profession," said Sheetal Gupta, Associate Director, Career Information with the Chartered Professional Accountants of Ontario. "It's been fun and we had a great time choosing the finalists. Now we're looking forward to getting the public's input on which videos are the best of the best."
A big part of the contest is based on how well people promote their video. The more views, likes and positive ratings received on YouTube, the better, although negative ratings and comments will not be counted. People are invited to vote for their favourite video. Aside from $1,500 for the winner, each of the other finalists will receive $200.
The Rule the Tube video competition – just one more reason why Chartered Professional Accountants rock.
