*Note from Event Producer Erin Jakob
The 2nd Annual BOMYT Challenge—a powerful member-driven, faith-sharing media event—invites participants to watch a newly produced unofficial video on the Book of Mormon, and share the video and their witness of this Testament of Christ with others on September 30, 2011.
First Annual Book of Mormon YouTube Challenge:
On May 3, 2010, the member-driven “First Annual Book of Mormon/YouTube Challenge” attracted approximately 60,000 participants and logged some 240,000 views in one day. The video not only reached the Top Ten Viral Videos list on CastTV, it also appeared in the “Trending Topics” on the YouTube homepage. While the numbers are impressive each event is centered on sharing the power and beauty of our faith in Jesus Christ through another witness of Him, the Book of Mormon, a companion to the Bible. Our focus is on the message; the participants’ social media response will determine its reach.
This year I am privileged to work with the highly regarded videographer Seth Adam Smith, whose work has been watched by an estimated 13 million viewers. Smith’s video will also feature the artwork of Howard Lyon, who, over the past 15 years has worked in the video game industry as an Art Director. His artwork will be featured on a video entitled “Messiah in America.” The musical score will feature music from the album "Messiah in America", performed by the Mormon Choral Organization.
I look forward to uniting with the many tens of thousands of you from last year that participated, and those that will participate for their first time this year, in witnessing to the world the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. I know the Book of Mormon draws us close to the Lord to feel of His peace and comfort we seek in our lives and that we can bring those same blessings to the lives of others as we have the courage and love to reach out and share what we believe.
All my best,
