The United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) is launching a new video clip competition under the theme “Promoting Investments for Resilient Nations and Communities”.
The initiative is in partnership with the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) of Thailand and Thai Public Broadcasting Service.
The competition aims to showcase the benefits of disaster risk reduction policies for nations and communities and how investing in prevention measures can make the world safer against disasters.
A jury composed of professional broadcasters from Thai PBS and disaster experts from DDPM and UNISDR will select the best video clips according to four categories:
Category 1: the best video produced by Youth/Students/Young People
Category 2: the best video produced by Media/Film Makers/Professional Producers
Category 3: the best video produced by NGOs/UN/DRR Experts
Category 4: the best video produced by the General Public/Other group
The winner of each category will receive a prize of between USD1,000 and USD2,000 at a Gala Ceremony during the closing ceremony of the Sixth Asian Ministerial Conference on Disaster Risk Reduction, in Bangkok, on 26 June 2014.
