tvebiomovies is open to anyone around the world with access to a computer, smartphone or camera. Through our global film competition, now in its seventh year, you can showcase your filmmaking talents and inspire others with your actions for the environment and sustainability.
You’ll have a chance to win one of our fabulous prizes – including a trip to the COP in Marrakech, Morocco, to work in the UNFCCC newsroom – and to tell the vital story of our planet today.
Telling this story is more urgent than ever. Every day, the world uses more natural resources than our planet can replace. Wildlife is fast growing extinct and our most important natural systems are breaking down. How do we turn around this degradation of our planet? We can champion ways of living more sustainably – and we can tell people about it.
The theme for tvebiomovies 2016 is the planetary boundaries, about living within the earth’s limits. The competition is about you, sharing your ideas of the actions we must take, the ways we must live and how we must value the planet we share.
tvebiomovies 2016 is now open and the deadline for entries is 23:00 GMT on 19 August.
There are four challenges in tvebiomovies 2016:
- The Global Youth Video Competition on Climate Change asks for three-minute video diaries of actions you are taking to address climate change or to raise public awareness.
- The short film competition seeks proposals for a one-minute film in five categories: biodiversity, forests, family farmers, recycling, and oceans and seas.
- Use your Minecraft skills to enter our Connect4Climate Sustainable Worlds competition to design an environmental habitat.
- Post a short 30-second video to Instagram about how you save water with our #stopthatdrop competition.
In 2015 we had 379 entrants from 90 countries. ‘Winning made me a torch-bearer for young people working to ensure a sustainable future,’ winner Charles Batte of Uganda told us. ‘tvebiomovies not only opened the world to us, but opened us to the world.’
