Power to the people. With video cameras.

The primaries wrapped up yesterday, but the voting fun continues with CNN's latest user-generated endeavor, the iReport Film Festival. Last year CNN added YouTube Q&As to its presidential debate coverage. This year, the iRFF is set up as a short-film competition for the masses to "document this year’s presidential campaign from their personal vantage point, whether they are volunteering for a campaign or have compelling stories about this election they want to document creatively."

Winners will be announced Thurs., Nov. 13 on "Anderson Cooper 360°", but you don't have to win to be featured on the small screen. According to the CNN press release:

Each Tuesday leading up to the announcement of the festival winners, one of the videos will be featured on Anderson Cooper 360°. Additionally, Headline News will showcase submissions Wednesday mornings on Morning Express with Robin Meade, Friday evenings on Showbiz Tonight, and over the weekend on News to Me.

Deadline is midnight, Sun., Oct. 12. More details at
