APA Announces the Winners of the 2011 Get Caught Listening Video Contest

After receiving 32 video submissions and narrowing the field to 10 impressive finalists, APA is pleased to announce the winners of our 2011 Get Caught Listening Video Contest. The winners, as determined by popular vote, are:

FIRST PRIZE – Get Caught Listening – To Audiobooks! – Submitted by Joel Moss Levinson
SECOND PRIZE – Forbidden Passions – Submitted by Jared Wheeler
THIRD PRIZE – Get Caught Listening – The Twins – Submitted by Samantha Villegas

Our congratulations go out to our three winners, who take home $5,000, $2,500, and $1,000, respectively!

We’d also like to thank all those who submitted to the contest for all the phenomenal videos we received.

And just because June Is Audiobook Month is coming to an end, doesn’t mean you can’t Get Caught Listening all year round! Our YouTube channel isn’t going anywhere, so check out all the video submissions by visiting www.youtube.com/getcaughtlistening.
