(RED)alert - upload your video shorts and artwork on MySpace for World AIDS Day

MySpace and Dazed & Confused magazine have joined forces to support World AIDS Day* by encouraging Joe Public to submit video shorts and artwork and pledge their support to join the (RED) initiative alongside such names as Samantha Morton, Juliette Lewis, Helena Christensen and Bjork.

Video shorts and images from well known directors, artists, musicians and actors will be integrated with your content to form a first-of-its kind broadcast - a visual pledge of support for World AIDS Day and (RED).

(RED)alert will be streamed in a 24 hour live broadcast on 1 December on the Dazed & Confused MySpace profile and DazedDigital.com, with audio provided by selected DJs and musicians.

The whole event will be archived on DazedDigital.com, alongside a bank of information and specially commissioned editorial on the (RED) initiative and the global AIDS pandemic. You'll also be able to download a virtual red ribbon via the site.

Director Mike Figgis is one of the first to supply content. His work will be a series of eight concept videos starring actors and musicians urging the public to get involved in (RED)alert.

You can upload your content via the magazine’s official MySpace profile:
