LatinX21, Video-Sharing Platform, Announces Initiative Celebrating True Stories Of Latinx Immigrants

"Mi Cuento, the LatinX21 Immigration Project" invites submissions of videos honoring the Latinx immigrant experience to compete for a $1000 prize

LOS ANGELES, March 15, 2021 — (PRNewswire) — On March 15, 2021 LatinX21, the world's only Latin-centric video sharing platform, will launch "Mi Cuento, the LatinX21 Immigration Project." The initiative was developed to give face to the innumerable Latinx and Hispanic families who have settled in the United States throughout history.

"Mi Cuento" invites submissions of videos honoring the Latinx immigration experience to compete for a $1000 prize.

The project encourages people residing in the United States, with roots in any of the world's 21 Spanish-speaking countries, to video and upload their personal story of how they, their family or someone they know settled here.

While the Mi Cuento project will continue throughout 2021, video submissions received by June 15, 2021 will be eligible to win a $1000 first prize. Videos can be as simple as an iPhone narrative, as elaborate as a professional production, edited interviews of family members, or even animation. Creativity is encouraged but memorializing these important stories is key.

A panel of judges and members of LatinX21 who can vote with "Likes" for their favorite submissions will determine the winner. Membership to LatinX21.com is free, so recruiting friends and family to sign up and vote will bolster content creators' chance of winning.

"As the daughter of Latinx/Hispanic immigrants I want to demonstrate how much our people contribute to America," said Dinah Perez, founder of LatinX21. "By pushing back against the negative stereotypes of immigrants, I hope to foster a culture of tolerance and inclusivity for them and their progeny. Celebrating the lives, artistry and traditions of the peoples of Spanish-speaking cultures has always been the goal of the platform and this project is a great way for people express pride in their personal stories."

Complete rules for the Mi Cuento Project Contest can be found here.
