We will showcase and reward the best short films on local climate change stories from student filmmakers from across the United States. We are looking for all types of climate stories - stories of devastating changes, but also stories of hopeful solutions.
We are not looking for films about general environmental issues like recycling or pollution.

The panel of judges will include well-known documentary filmmakers, and climate change experts. Entries should demonstrate excellence in filmmaking and tell a unique regional climate change story. Entries should be 5-10 minutes in length.

Finalist films will premiere at a prestigious environmental film festival in Washington, DC in March 2015. Please see website for more details- http://postcardsfromclimatechange.org/student-competition.

We are looking for finished works but will consider works in progress (please email vus@greenpeace.org to discuss).

*The first place winner will receive a cash prize of $500 and an all-expense paid trip to the premiere.

*Additionally, finalist films will be featured on the Postcards From Climate Change website, Greenpeace YouTube channel, and Greenpeace blog.
