We asked New Yorkers to help communicate why it is so important to wear a mask to stop the spread of coronavirus.
We collected more than 600 submissions from New Yorkers across the state as part of the "Wear a Mask New York Ad Contest" and had New Yorkers vote on five finalist videos. Thank you to everyone who voted, and there were 186,000 votes cast in the contest.
New York will be using the 1st and 2nd place ads for public service announcements.

We asked New Yorkers why they put on a mask everyday. Through the struggle, there is hope—in their eyes and in their words. Produced by Blue Slate Films, a female-run production company. - Natalia Bougadellis and Emory Parker
We created this short PSA for New York out of Love and Compassion for others. Watch as an unlikely stranger helps another less fortunate in need. - Skyline99 Studios
New Yorkers Do What's Right. They know that the best thing they can do to stop the spread of Covid-19 is to wear a mask when they're around others. That's why New Yorkers of every color, creed, sexual orientation and gender identity are practicing social distancing and wearing masks in public. They know that our individual strength is our collective inheritance. They Know What's Right. - Ian Bell
