A global climate change competition gives young people the chance to tell a story that could change the world.
If you’re aged 14-35 and savvy with a camera, you could win yourself up to $8000 or some fancy camera equipment with the Film4Climate competition run by Connect4Climate.
Connect4Climate is a global partnership programme launched by the World Bank Group that says it “takes on climate change by promoting solutions and empowering people to act.”
The program connects more than 400 partners worldwide and interacts with a global audience of more than a million individuals.
What Does Climate Change Mean to You?
The competition comes in two parts with two age categories (14-17 and 18-35). You can either submit a video advertisement (less than 1 min) or a short film (1 – 5 minutes) about climate action.
Your video should show a personal climate change narrative – what does climate change mean to you? What are you doing to tackle climate change?
Submissions should also emphasise what people are doing around the world to promote climate action, offer new solutions, and inspire change.
The Judging Panel will select up to eight entries, who will earn the highest overall score based on the jury members individual vote.
The winners in the 14-17 age group will win video equipment and software. The winners of the 18-35 groups will scoop $8000 and the second and third place runner ups will get $5000 and $2000 respectively.
How to Apply
The deadline for the competition is September 2016 – so you’ve got plenty of time to get filming!
The Judging Panel will select the winning entries based content, technical expertise, and innovation, originality and impact.
Once you’re happy with your submission upload it to the Film4Climate website.
