Authorship Video Contest 2021

The Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship is proud to launch a wonderful “Authorship Video Contest” for 2021. It is an annual competition that is currently accepting entries from students through July 20. For this year, the award amount has been raised to increase the participation of students. The official name of this program is “Who Wrote Shakespeare?” Video Contest designed to promote the discussion and encourage the exploration of evidence of reasonable doubts about the true identity of this great author. This contest is looking forward to applications from candidates from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Denmark, Australia, and New Zealand. The participants must be at least 18 years old to compete.

The fantastic part of this program is that there is no fee to enter this program. Participation is entirely free. For over 400 years, questions have been raising concerning the authorship of the work that is considered to be written by Shakespeare. In fact, during Shakespeare’s own time, such questions were the hot topics and rose by other great writers of that time such as Walt Whitman, Mark Twain, Sigmund Freud, Helen Keller, Malcolm X, Vanessa Redgrave, Anne Rice, and U.S. Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia. This contest has been a popular program among the students and always arouses particular interest. Each year, it receives a wonderful response from around the world in the form of groundbreaking entries. Despite having a different opinion, the Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship organization always shows interest in candidates’ discussions on this topic.

Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship has been working as a non-profit organization investigating and exploring Shakespeare authorship questions and spreading the evidence that Edward de Vere is the real author of the poems and plays published under the pseudonym “William Shakespeare.” Its mission is to finding the truth regarding the authorship of the work published under the pseudonym “William Shakespeare” and proving that Edward de Vere was the real author.
