The World Environment Day (WED) 2014 Video-Blogging Competition invites the world's creative thinkers to capture an engaging two-minute video focusing on WED's 2014 theme: Small Island Developing States and climate change
Nairobi, 14 March 2014
- Video-bloggers of the world can now raise their voices - and their cameras - in support of Small Island Developing States across the globe.
The World Environment Day (WED) 2014 Video-Blogging Competition invites the world's creative thinkers to capture an engaging two-minute video focusing on WED's 2014 theme: Small Island Developing States and climate change.
UNEP Goodwill Ambassador and internationally-renowned actor Don Cheadle will choose the winner. The winner will also receive a trip to one of these unique small island nations to video-blog for a major UN event.
Led annually by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), WED - celebrated annually on 5 June - rallies millions across more than 70 countries through events that range from clean up campaigns to tree planting drives to concerts and exhibits.
This year, you can document your events and share them with the world.
With climate change foremost among the challenges facing Small Island Developing States, WED's motto this year is Raise Your Voice, Not the Sea Level. Video-blogs that capture this theme or any of its key components - "Celebrating World Environment Day", "Small Islands Developing States" or "Climate Change" - will be considered.
Publish your video on your YouTube or Youku account and post the link on UNEP's global Facebook page (@UNEP.org).
Alternately, you can Weebo the message "I just submitted by video blog to win a trip to a Small Island for World Environment Day 2014. Watch it and be inspired to celebrate WED!"
If you prefer to send the link by e-mail, you can send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "I just submitted my video blog to win a trip to a Small Island for World Environment Day 2014. Watch it and be inspired to celebrate WED!"
Entries must be received by 4 April 2014 to be considered.
To increase your chances of winning, post your story on Twitter with the hashtag #WED2014 or #WorldEnvironmentDay, and encourage friends to comment, "like" and "share" your post on Facebook, to retweet it on Twitter or to like it on YouTube.
The final winner will be chosen based on the quality, relevance, creativity and popularity of the video.
