1. Who can enter the contest?
EVERYONE who is interested in social, humanitarian and environmental issues and capable of producing a 2-5 minute digital film may enter the contest. However, employees of the World Bank Group and their immediate families (spouse, parent, sibling, child, and respective spouses) and those living in their immediate households, whether or not related, of the World Bank Group are not eligible to enter the competition or win a prize.

2. How can I enter the contest?
Please read the instructions on the
 Submit Films page.

3. How can I win an award for the contest?
There are two award categories: 1) Social Dimensions of Climate Change Award (general category) and 2) Young Voices of Climate Change Award (youth category).  The general category is open to everyone; the youth category is open to entries submitted by filmmakers who are under 24 years old. 

The general public will be able to vote for their favorite films.  The 15 entries submitted to the general category which receive the most votes from the public and the top 5 films submitted to the youth category which receive the most votes from the general public will be shortlisted and presented to the judges (Meet the Judges) for their final selection. 

Please read details on the Judging Process to find out more about how winning films will be selected.

We encourage you to submit your film early so that you can increase your chances of receiving the most public votes. You may also increase your chances of getting into the top 15 entries  (and the top 5 entries for the youth award category) by sharing the website link with friends, blogs, social networking sites, etc.

4. What are the awards for the contest?
The award winners will be invited to Washington, DC to present their film and to attend a series of networking and learning events organized by the Social Development Department, World Bank. A tentative schedule of events to be organized for the award winners includes:

  • awards ceremony
  • film showcase event
  • cocktail reception
  • career development workshop
  • seminar series on the Social Dimensions of Climate Change
5. Can I get help from the World Bank to make a film?
Unfortunately we are not able to provide film equipment or facilities to help you make a film. Your creativity counts!

6. What will happen to the films after the contest?
We plan to organize a special event showcasing the award winning films as well as seek additional platforms to promote the submitted short-documentary films beyond the contest.

7. Where will the winning films be screened?
All eligible entries will be shown on the Social Development Department’s contest website, and the award winning films will be showcased on the World Bank’s channel on YouTube.
