Planet Dog Foundation PSA Wins Maine 7DAYPSA Contest

National Competition Brings Filmmakers and Non-Profit Organizations Together

The Planet Dog Foundation (PDF), Planet Dog's non-profit, is thrilled to announce that the PSA made about their grantmaking organization has won the Maine 7 Day PSA Contest. Team Hurf Durf, the winning filmmakers, was awarded a cash prize for their work and the PSA will run on Maine-based TV stations for a full year.   Portland, Maine was the second stop of the National 7DAYPSA competition which begun in Rhode Island and is headed to cities across the nation. The competition is the brainchild of Duncan Putney and Andre Stark, of OCD Associates in Providence, RI. It was created to draw attention to nonprofit organizations and filmmakers by bringing them together to provide deserving organizations a broadcast quality PSA along with a commitment from local media outlets to air it.  Filmmakers are given seven days to write, cast, direct and edit a public service announcement for a local non-profit. The Hurf Durf team that won top prize for the Planet Dog Foundation PSA, was led by director Tim Lazimov. Team Hurf Durf also received awards for best editing, best animation and best director.
