Deadline: 4 April 2014
Open to: any video enthusiast or amateur videographer, age 18 and above
Awards: a trip to an island to video blog for a major UN event.
Put your creativity and video skills to work in defense of the small islands. Capture in an engaging, visually creative, two-minute video what World Environment Day 2014 is all about and get a chance to win a trip to a stunning island to cover a UN event!
The World Environment Day 2014 theme is about Small Islands Development States (SIDS). Raise your voice, not the sea level. WED 2014 will shine the spotlight on Small Islands and their unique development challenges and successes. Climate change is foremost among these challenges.
We are looking for original and engaging ways of delivering this message through a video – a short and creative movie of no more than 2 minutes that can be made with your mobile phone or home camera and in your own language. You don´t need to be a professional movie maker or to write a film script, but you have to try to find the most interesting and universally appealing way of telling the WED message to the world!
Any video enthusiast or amateur videographer, age 18 and above, can enter the competition. Please note that we are accepting entries in as many languages as possible to ensure we receive a wide representation from many parts of the world.
The exciting news is that the best video will be chosen by Hollywood Star and UNEP Goodwill Ambassador Don Cheadle, and the winner will travel to one of the world’s paradise islands to video blog for a major UN event.
Additional awards (Recognition for Effort, Best School Award, School Incentive Award) will be given if applicable. Winners will be announced in November 2014 on the Goi Peace Foundation web-site and UNESCO web-site.
The competition is free to enter. Participants may submit more than one video. However, a participant can only have one entry at the final showdown. Competition accepts entries in all languages but we would like to encourage all participants to aim for universality with their approach (i.e. the message can be understood by as broad an audience as possible). Participants who don´t use English in their video messages are requested to send a translation of the script. All entries that exceed 2 minutes will be disqualified.
