Each winner gets a mini-HD camera and a trip to the Presidential Inauguration.

The iReport Film Festival was announced in July.

Anderson Cooper, 50 Cent Rock The Vote

It was a coming together of two big name cable channels for a good cause — aiding veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The partnership was a little odd at times, but the audience, mostly vets and their families, thoroughly enjoyed it. 50 Cent kicked off the festivities, and Sway introduced Anderson Cooper, who voiced several features on vets that aired during the program. Cooper also spent nearly half an hour before the event signing autographs and taking pictures with thankful attendees.

Meanwhile, Headline News’ Robin Meade was in the crowd, interviewing veterans and even turned one interview into a proposal between a vet and his girlfriend. D.L. Hughley, fresh off his premiere taping, appeared to introduce a musical act.

“A Night for Vets: An MTV Concert for the BRAVE,” airs tonight at 8pmET on MTV. Here are some pictures of the event, with more after the jump:
