Opportunity for film students/competition
September 19, 2018
I'm writing to let you know about the Witnessing Change Video Competition, which invites filmmakers to submit short videos documenting personal climate change impacts already happening in communities around America, or innovative solutions these communities are employing to deal with climate change. The contest is run by the Climate Cost Project, a non-profit organization focused on giving voice to Americans’ experiences with climate change, and helping communities better understand the risks they face to become more resilient.
The entry deadline is November 15, 2018 and the winners will be announced December 15th, 2018.
Top entrants will receive cash prizes, with the first place winner receiving $1,000, and two runner-up prizes of $250 each. Through a collaboration with StormCenter Communications and the Glen Gerberg Weather and Climate Summit, the Climate Cost Project will also work to bring the best videos from the competition to local television stations around the country. The Glen Gerber Weather and Climate Summit is an annual conference that brings together leading scientists and top broadcast meteorologists from North American markets. Top videos will be offered to news professionals for possible use in local news stories.
The competition will be judged by award-winning environmental filmmakers whose bios can be seen here. We invite filmmakers to visit the competition webpage to read the guidelines and learn more.
