Next date: Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021 (All day) (see all dates)

Bwa ha ha ha ha! We are heading into the Fall and it is time for the DC Public Library’s Annual Evil Laugh Contest. (To be fair, this is the first one, but we are pretty sure we’re gonna want to do this one again.)

  • What you do: Submit a 10-second video of yourself doing your most wicked, spine-tingling evil laugh. 
  • What we do: Sit back and enjoy your videos all month. Select entries to include in a show-stopping compilation video to share on our YouTube page, and award trophies.
  • Who can participate? Anybody or anything (your grandmother, your screaming baby, your pet guinea pig, all of your cousins, your school principal). 
  • How long do I have to submit my video? You have from Sept. 1 to Oct. 15 to film and submit your best impression of an evil-doer. 
  • How do I win? Trophies will be awarded in several categories such as, Best Vocals, Art Direction, Dramatic Performance. If you win, you must be able to pick up your prize at your local participating DC Public Library.

Let the evil laughs commence!  Bwa ha ha ha ha!
