Vegan Smart’s video contest winner vows to use his $10,000 prize to promote “Environmental Conservation & Veganism”

When I read that a company named Vegan Smart was running a video contest with a $10,000 grand prize I briefly considered pretending to be vegan just so I could enter.  But I’m not enough of a sociopath to do something so weirdly unethical so I didn’t participate.  And now that the contest is over I’m actually glad I didn’t shoot an entry because the competition here was tough.  The winners were determined by votes alone and those types of contests can be brutal.  I followed the voting for a while and a few entries bounced in and out of the top slot. But in the end, the winner was a filmmaker named Josh Garcia.



Josh creates youtube videos about related to the environment and conservation.  When he was lobbying for votes in the Vegan Smart Contest, Josh promised his fans that all his winnings would go towards veganism and the “conservation of our beautiful planet.”

Now that he’s the official winner, I checked with Josh and asked what he was going to do with the ten grand he won.  He said he plans to use the money to create a new video that explains the importance of “low impact plant based nutrition.”  If you’d like to see the video that Josh makes with his winnings you can subscribe to his youtube channel.
