Following the tragic rape and murder of the Delhi Gang Rape Victim, Jyoti Singh Pandey, The Pixel Project dedicated our Valentine 2013 YouTube Cover Carnival contest to honour Ms. Pandey’s courage and strength in fighting for her life until the bitter end.
Ms. Pandey’s death is a tipping point that triggered a major backlash against Violence Against Women in India and worldwide and we hope this collective musical tribute will be a positive way of keeping the momentum of the activism going.
The Pixel Project is a global, virtual, volunteer-led 501(c)3 nonprofit working to raise awareness, funds and volunteer power for the cause to end Violence Against Women using the power of the internet, social media, new technologies and popular culture/the Arts.
We are joined and supported by an all-star panel of judges including:
- AHMIR (also The Pixel Project’s YouTube Music Ambassador)
- Ali Brustofski
- J Rice
- Lisa Lavie
Our YouTube Cover Carnival Contest is open to all up-and-coming YouTube artistes. Contestants have a choice of 2 songs to cover:
“Little Things” by One Direction
“Greatest Love of All” by Whitney Houston
