Globally, nearly 100% of adults have tooth decay and oral disease affects 3.9 billion people worldwide, with untreated tooth decay impacting almost half of the world’s population. This year’s World Cavity-Free Future Day will focus on tooth decay as a disease across the life course, with each age group and generation facing different experiences.
We believe that having casual conversations among adults, children and seniors about dental care is a great place to start, so this year we are launching a competition, ‘Smiles Across Generations.’
‘Smiles Across Generations’ is a video competition campaign in which we ask you to submit a 30-second video to help us raise awareness on how we can achieve a cavity-free future. The winners will be announced on World Cavity-Free Future Day.
What do you want to see in my video?
We’re looking for real conversations between people of any age discussing how they look after their teeth. Entries can be in any language but must be 30 seconds or less (and 100MB max).
We are NOT looking for high-quality, professional videos – videos taken on a mobile phone or tablet are perfect! Click below to view the entries we’ve received so far on our YouTube playlist.
The competition is open from 1st July 2020 – 30th September 2020.
How do I take part?
Simply follow the link below to complete a short entry form, review the full terms and conditions and upload your video. Then, share your video on social media using #toothtales. We’ll review the content before posting the videos to our official ACFF YouTube channel and social media pages.
How will winners be selected, and what can I win? The competition has three categories: ‘Most Likes’, ‘Most Shares’ and ‘Judge’s Choice’ with the prize of an iPad (10.2″ Retina display) for each category. Winners will be announced on 14th October 2020.
UPDATE: Due to the competition deadline extension date, although we will not accept entries after 30th September, we will consider the number of ‘Likes’ and ‘Shares’ until 10th October (23:59 BST).
