One minute – or 60 seconds – is a lot of time on the air. Our friends in radio and TV broadcasting know this well.
And with shrinking attention spans, many news items on TV are now being packaged for a minute, or not much longer.
Their challenge: make a film of exactly 60 seconds which explores how we look after our planet and use it like there is a tomorrow.
Here are the key rules of the game:
60 seconds – no more, no less.
Ideally broadcast quality.
Consider audience – Internet, TV, phones, etc.
Contributors must be the sole author(s).
You can submit more than one film.
No unlicenced use of copyrighted material.
No rude, unlawful or discriminatory material.
No promotion of products or services.
Some prizes are only open to UK residents.
All green one-minute films can be entered, regardless of previous screenings and awards.
Deadline is 20 August 2007. That should give us plenty of minutes to come up with some really compelling one minute films.
