Youth video competition: share your vision of a sustainable future and win cash prizes

Change language
What is your vision for sustainable living in 20 years' time? Competition "Generation '92" offers the opportunity for young Europeans born in 1991, 1992 or 1993 to make a video showing their vision of a sustainable future. The winners will be invited to take part in an event on sustainable development in Copenhagen on 5 June. The best entries will also win a total of € 6,000 in cash prizes.

 

***UPDATE - DEADLINE EXTENDED UNTIL 12.00 CET, 11 APRIL, 2012***

Twenty years ago, heads of state met in Rio de Janeiro for the first ever Earth Summit. The conference was a historic event, leading to several environmental treaties. This June, leaders will meet again, hopefully marking another positive turning point for the environment.

The European Environment Agency (EEA) is looking for young people with a fresh vision of how we can solve the most pressing environmental problems. Like the Rio summit, eligible contestants will be around 20 years old (born in 1991, 1992 or 1993), a citizen of an EEA member or cooperating country, or Greenland, and have a passion for the environment. More information on submission of videos will be made available in the coming weeks.

Videos should be between 30 seconds and two minutes in length, and show the contestant’s personal vision of sustainable living. Contestants may wish to show the main environmental concerns in their country, and their vision of how these problems can be resolved. Another approach could focus on how their generation can lead the transformation of Europe to a more sustainable way of life.

The competition is open to a range of approaches – for example, contestants are free to choose journalism or fiction, live action or animation, interviews or images. If the videos are in a language other than English, they must have English subtitles.

The public will also be given an opportunity to vote the 'Buzz' Prize, nominating their favourite video via social media.

Prizes

  • 1st place: €3000 and plaque
  • 2nd place: €2000 and plaque
  • 3rd place: €1000 and plaque
  • Public vote winner: plaque

The jury will be made up of notable journalists, communication professionals and media industry experts. They will be looking for the most original ideas and creative communication styles.

The four winners will travel to the EEA headquarters in Copenhagen, where they will receive cash prizes at an awards ceremony on 5 June 2012.
