The #Uniting4Climate VR/360-video pitch competition is part of a communications campaign in the lead up to and through COP23 that highlights unity in support of climate solutions; countries, cities, regions, businesses, civil society and individuals are “Uniting for Climate Action”.
This competition invites everyone (18+) who is committed to coming together to reduce the threats to our Planet and intent on creating or multiplying solutions for immediate climate action to send a traditional illustrative video concept together with a written description explaining in detail their plans for the production of a 360-video (Virtual Reality) on how we are “Uniting for Climate Action.”
The video pitch submissions could highlight solutions to overcoming climate threats for vulnerable and coastal communities, supporting ocean and environmental protection, addressing rising and warming oceans, managing fresh water resources, preventing pollution and waste, building smarter and more resilient cities and making the linkages with other climate actions.
The submissions should describe simple, but ingenious ideas that will enable relatively low cost VR production with the focus primarily on the subject matter rather than the technique. The potential cost vis-à-vis the creativity envisaged will be taken into account in the judging process.
The pitch should emphasize the core message: “Uniting for Climate Action”.
As Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank Group, has emphasized: “We will never end poverty if we don’t tackle climate change.”
The winning entry will be given the opportunity to work with Connect4Climate and their production partners to transform the concept into a 360-video (Virtual Reality) production.
