TRENTON, NJ – Governor Phil Murphy announced "Your Voice, Your Shot" video contest that urges New Jersey residents to share why they and others are getting vaccinated.

The contest calls for compelling, creative and captivating videos, and a number of finalists will be chosen. The public then will be invited to vote on their favorites. The winning video will be used in the State of New Jersey's COVID-19 public health campaign.

“We’re fortunate so many talented, creative and passionate individuals call our state home. So the same way we’ve made previous calls to serve in support of our state’s response to the pandemic, we’re inviting the public to get behind and in front of the camera for an important cause,” said Gov. Murphy. "Whether you’re a filmmaker, community group member or just someone with a smartphone and a story to tell, we want to hear from you.”
