Video contest challenges students to fight fraud in New York – Cash Prizes!

Insurers are urging students to create a video that convincingly shows how all New Yorkers pay for insurance fraud. It’s a video contest sponsored by the New York Alliance Against Insurance Fraud — with cash prizes.

Undergrad or grad students will create a short video showing how insurance fraud damages New Yorkers — and how to fight back. It will be two minutes max, and geared for social sharing.

Winner receives $1,000; runner-up gets $500. Videos are due online Jan. 27, 2017. Students can sign up here:

Student filmmakers should motivate New Yorkers of all ages with any of these consumer messages:

  • Upstate. Downstate. Everyone is a victim!
  • Insurance fraud — the crime you pay for
  • Insurance fraud hurts everyone.

Students will hone their creative skills — and do a public service for New Yorkers everywhere. Students can be full time or part time.

Winners will be announced online in February. The filmmaker(s) will receive their awards during NYAAIF’s annual meeting in New York City on March 8, 2017.

NYAAIF is an alliance of 104 insurance companies in New York. NYAAIF was created in 1999 to educate consumers about the cost of insurance fraud and help consumers avoid becoming victims. For more information, visit
