Climate Change Trailer Competition For Earth Hour

Submitted by iofilm on Mon, 03/08/2010 - 10:02

WWF-UK is calling on budding filmmakers to enter a competition and win £1000 cash by making a short video about Earth Hour, a global call for action against climate change.

The conservation organisation is inviting people to make a short video trailer to encourage individuals, buildings and businesses to switch off their lights for an hour on the 27 March 2010 between 8.30 and 9.30 pm to show they care about climate change.

The Earth Hour 2010 video competition is a chance for people to bring their own personal message to the campaign and take part in what is set to be the greatest ever climate change event in the world.

Entrants are being asked to think about how they can inspire people to sign up and switch off. What would they do during Earth Hour? How can they encourage friends and family to turn off their lights? All over the country people are planning candlelit dinners and torch-lit processions - how else can we send a powerful message to our world leaders to take decisive action against climate change during Earth Hour?

The video should be no more than one minute long and the deadline for entries is 12 midday on 15th March 2010.

The best entries will be shown on the WWF-UK website as they come in and the winning film will be used to promote Earth Hour. The winner will receive £1000 and two runners-up will receive £500.
