Youth Mobile Film Competition for Black Sea

The DOORS Black Sea project has launched a mobile film competition inviting young people to ask DOORS scientists questions. Michael Rea, EuroGOOS, GeoEcoMar, and other DOORS partners have co-developed this call.

They say that 60 seconds can change the world. Young people are invited to submit a 1-minute smartphone produced film that asks DOORS scientists a question about the Black Sea.

As a project, DOORS recognises how modern smartphones have championed the democratisation of both access to marine knowledge and to filmmaking. We are calling on citizens to share their concerns and experiences in a creative way and encourage others to learn more! 

We are looking for entries from ages 14-21 that encourage us all to think about our actions as humans and what we can do to look after the Black Sea. Films will be evaluated based on simple criteria and can be made in any language (we will add English subtitles). Submissions can be made by either an individual or a group working together.

DOORS has established a large international audience and network and all submissions will gain a great deal of exposure, using the hashtag #AskBlackSeaScientist. A selection of the best films will be showcased on our website and at international conferences and events. The film with the most likes/votes will have their question answered by a selection of DOORS experts in response. The winners of the best film will also receive a very special prize from the DOORS project. The deadline to enter is 31 October 2024 – International Black Sea Action Day.

All details of the call are available here.
