On the 16th of July, the Maltese NGO KOPIN, in the framework of the EC co-financed project Global Campus has launched a video competition for students enrolled at the University of Malta. The aim of the competition is to raise awareness among University students about issues related to the Millennium Development Goals, Global Social Justice issues and sustainable development by asking them to create a 2-minute long video through which they will be able to express their views about these topics.
The prizes are tempting – the winner gets a trip for two to Ethiopia, where they will be linked up with local development NGOs to get a better understanding about development work on the ground, while the second and third prize winners will receive books vouchers. Students have plenty of time to create the video – the deadline for submissions is the 17th of October 2014. A total of 6 videos will then be selected by an international jury and put on Facebook for a second round of voting through the public. Videos can be filmed using any equipment including mobile phone, webcam or amateur video camera, and no professional recording devices are required.
More information on the Rules and Terms & Conditions, as well as the Application Form to be submitted alongside the video can be found here.
