The deadline for the Noble Homes Video Contest has been extended.
Submissions will now be due by April 17, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time. Winners will be chosen by owners of manufactured . This contest is for and about them, so it’s important they have a say in how they are portrayed.
For decades, owners of manufactured homes have had to deal with the stigma associated with this vital source of affordable, unsubsidized housing that nearly in which 18 million residents live. Homeowners have bumped up against the outdated notions, incorrect language and unfair stereotypes because of where their homes were built.
But reality tells a different story.
In so many of these neighborhoods, hard-working homeowners make choices to help not only themselves, but their entire community. A visit to these homes and communities quickly wipes away the common misconception that these are homes or neighborhoods of last resort.
That’s exactly what the Noble Homes Video Contest does: Show the true reality of manufactured home living.
There are countless stories out there that could inspire us each and every day, ones meant to be widely shared. Creating and sharing these videos will achieve just that.
There are two contests. In the first, videos can only be 30 seconds to a minute long. The second seeks longer videos: 1 to 3 minutes. In both, the videos are meant to capture snapshots of what it’s truly like to live in these homes or neighborhoods while demolishing the stigma around them.
First place winners in both contests will be awarded $5,000 and a runners up will win $1,000. Anyone can submit as many videos as they want for either contest and are eligible to win in both categories if chosen by the judges. However, a contestant will not be able to win more than once in a given contest (you can’t be chosen for both first and second place in the same contest).
