Together we can tackle climate change. What would it take to turn the tide?

All Washington state high school and undergraduate students can answer that question with a short film for a chance at the $4,000 prize. The UW School of Environmental and Forest Sciences (SEFS) and EarthLab want your submissions of films that are two-minutes or less by the April 7, 2019 deadline.

Films can be submitted by individuals or teams, and can take on any genre. The judge's pick wins $4,000 and the people's choice earns a $2,500 prize.

The top videos will proceed to the finalist round and will be screened at the UW Climate Change Video Awards in early May, the public awards ceremony where we announce the winners. A panel of climate scientists, filmmakers, and artists will discuss the videos and award prizes.

“Two minutes, one prompt, your vision.”
