In anticipation of the upcoming premiere of the film 45365 (Independent Lens, December 14 at 9 PM – check local listings), we’re launching a social media contest for you, our faithful fans.
Screen shot 2010-11-30 at 11.51.36 AM.pngThe rules are simple:
• Leave your entry in a comment below, on our Facebook page, or in a Twitter message (if you tweet your entry you MUST include one of these hashtags: #zipcode or #IL);
• Your message must be 140 characters or fewer;

We will sort through all of the entries and nominate the Top 10 Zip entries, all of whom will receive a $15 iTunes gift card.
Then we will put the finalists up for a popular vote on this blog and name our winner, who will receive a $15 iTunes gift card, a gift bag full of Independent Lens goodies, and a profile interview of your very own self to be published right here on the Independent Lens blog on
