We will choose up to five people to accompany our film crew on an all-expenses-paid European trip to investigate the alleged miracles happening in Medjugorje. To enter the contest, create and submit an online video stating why you want to go.
Be open and honest about yourself; the contest is open to anyone, and we want a good mix of skeptics and believers.
Contestants are allowed one video entry. Contestant videos must receive a minimum of 100 votes to be considered for the second round of selection by the production committee. The third and final round will select the top tier of voted video entrants. The committee reserves the right to make the final selections.
