On November 6, 2013 in New York, Reason announced the winners of
the first-ever Reason
Video Prize, which honors short-form video, film, and moving
pictures that explore, investigate, and enrich our appreciation of
libertarian beliefs in individual rights, limited government, and
especially human possibilities.
Top honors – and $7,000 – went to Drew Tidwell’s “I,
Pencil,” produced for the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Second
place ($2,000) went to Justin Monticello’s “Obama That I Used to
Know,” and third place ($1,000) went to Isaac Reese’s “Game of Food
Trucks,” produced for the Institute for Justice.
The other finalists were “Top DHS Checkpoint Refusals,” produced
by Mike Mills, and “Chrony Chronicles: I Want to Grow Up to be a
Crony,” by Owen Brennan, Justin Folk, and Robert Perkins.
Congratulations to all the finalists and thanks all who entered
