Alternate Media Challenge
No one is too small [or too young] to make a difference (Greta Thunberg)
In anticipation of our third annual Kids Climate Challenge we are inviting students of all ages to submit video, audio and other online media pieces. These could take many forms from audio-only music, spoken word or otherwise sound designed pieces, to full scale video documentaries, animations, or fictional representations. The sky is the limit. We recommend that you keep your pieces to under 5 minutes, though that is not a hard and fast rule.
For those interested in producing a video, the One Earth Film Festival has developed an online self-paced course on movie creation. The course contains 3 hours of instruction broken into many short videos assuming students have only smart phones of tablets available to them. It covers Scriptwriting & Storyboards through Props, Costumes, Lighting & Shadows to Publishing, Privacy, & Digital Citizenship. Learn more about it here. Those considering a video submission may also want to familiarize themselves with the One Earth Film Festival guidelines, as they could potentially submit their piece there in January after receiving feedback and comment from our judges.
All submissions meeting the challenge will be considered for posting on the Kids Climate Change webpage, or for inclusion in a Climate Change viewing/listening party in Winter 2022.
All students are invited to participate.
Submission instructions will be provide to all who register once they have been finalized.
