Think differently and get filming

Who needs the Sundance Film Festival when you have this? The OECD’s annual competition for young videomakers.

Once again, we’re asking anyone aged between 18 and 25 to submit a short video (no more than three minutes) on a theme close to the OECD’s heart. This year, we want you to look at the global economy and then Think Differently: How would you shape tomorrow’s global economy? And what key issues do we need to think about to build a more inclusive world?

The prize? An all-expenses-paid trip to Paris in late May, just in time for the OECD Forum. As previous entrants can testify, that’s well worth winning: “It’s one of the most enriching experience of my life,” said Rachit Sai Barak, a winner in 2012. “At the Forum I not only had the privilege to listen to some of the most eminent economists, politicians and leaders of the world, but I also got a chance to share my experiences, highlight problems and find effective solutions.”

Your deadline is 2 April 2013. Don’t forget to visit the competition site to check out the rules and regulations.

Progress is … a trip to Paris in the Spring?

What is progress? If you think you know the answer, and fancy yourself as a filmmaker, you could win a trip to Paris in May 2011.

To celebrate its 50th anniversary, the OECD is inviting young people (ages 18-25) from around the world to make a short video that completes the phrase, Progress is …

Videos should be …

  • No longer than three minutes;
  • Made in English or French (the OECD’s two official languages)
  • Submitted – along with the online registration form  – by midnight (Paris time) on 1 March 2011.
