Mountains Matter Video Contest

Mountains Matter Video Contest

Win a trip to Rome to see your video shown at the International Mountain Day concert!

Almost one billion people live in mountain areas and over half the human population depends on mountains for water, food and clean energy. Yet mountains are under threat from climate change, land degradation and natural disasters, with potentially far-reaching and devastating consequences both for mountain communities and for the rest of the world. To bring attention to the plight of mountains for International Mountain Day (11 December), we are asking you to make a one-minute video on the theme of ‘Mountains under pressure: climate, hunger, migration’ for the #MountainsMatter video contest.

Who can take part?

General: No professional equipment? No worries! Grab your smartphone and record a message about mountains, film yourself explaining how climate change has affected a mountain you know, interview someone from a mountain community in a rural area about the difficulties they encounter, or think of another idea that inspires you around the concept of mountains under pressure.

Professional: This category is open to people who would like to produce entries with professional video and editing equipment. You don’t have to be a film-maker to enter, but you may be competing with them!

The deadline for entries is 3 November 2017.
