Jobs are hard to come by for people with disabilities, recession or not. But a campaign by a consortium of leading disability organizations is seeking to change that trend. And they’re looking for innovative videos to help them do so.

The Campaign for Disability Employment is looking for videos showing positive images of people with disabilities at work. The maker of the winning video will receive a prize worth $1,500 and several of the best videos will be featured on the campaign’s Web site.
