Every now and then a really brilliant upload competition comes along that blows all the others out the water. Link TV’s View Change film contest does just that, offering filmmakers the chance to make short films that will raise awareness of the UN’s Millenium Development Goals that aims to reduce extreme poverty by 2015.
You can be a first time filmmaker or a pro – it doesn’t matter. They’re just looking for work that inspires action and packs a punch. It needn’t even be a doc – they accept any genre. There are six contest categories: Sustainability, Innovation, Overcoming Conflict, Empowerment, Leadership & Governance and Local/Global Partnerships, so there’s plenty of room to interpret the brief in interesting and original ways. The Grand Prize is $20,000 and $5,000 is awarded to the winner of each category, with online voters determining the finalists.
The competition opens 30 April and the dealine is 31 August.
