Since the Expo's video contest started in March, more and more visitors to the World Expo in Shanghai have taken along a video camera to enter their own work.

As on this season's contest wraps up, three more contestants have won the right to proceed to the final round.

At the contest, not only are the candidates videos played, but contestants also perform in an eye-catching talent show. Celebrities Aaron Kwok and Zhang Jingchu have joined the judging panel for this season. Though they haven't yet been to Expo park, both express their strong wishes to attend after seeing the videos shot by members of the public.

Among all candidate videos, a short film called "Life and Sunshine" has scored the most votes.

The video points its lens at three disabled volunteers who work at the Life and Sunshine Pavilion, the first pavilion in the Expo's 159-year history dedicated to the disabled. Using the simple yet powerful language of cinema, the short film touches the hearts of viewers.

Together with "Life and Sunshine," two other videos have made it into the finals scheduled for October. As the contest proceeds, organizers are encouraging citizens to take videos of things that help them connect with the theme "better city, better life".
