In an effort to help stop the harmful effects of fake products, the United States Patent and Trademark Office has announced an Anti-Counterfeiting Video Contest.

Entrants are asked to create a 30- to 60-second video showing the harmful effects of counterfeit products and the need to stop them at home and abroad. Various cash prizes can reach $2,500.

The deadline for submissions is October 31, 2018. For more information, see: updates-and-announcements/anti-counterfeiting-video-contest
