Vulnerability Exposed: Social Dimensions of Climate Change

documentary competition that will highlight the social aspects of climate
change as experienced and/or observed by the film-maker(s).

The contest is open
to anyone, and submitted films should innovatively illustrate the consequences
of climate change through one of the following theme categories: conflict,
migration, the urban space, rural institutions, drylands, social policy,
indigenous peoples, gender, governance, forests, and/or human rights.
There are
two award categories: Social Dimensions of Climate Change Award (general
category); and Young Voices of Climate Change (youth category). The general
category is open to professionals and amateurs, while the youth category is
open to entries submitted by filmmakers who are under 24 years old. The
deadline for submissions is 24 October 2008. Award winners will be chosen through a combination of public voting and
a judging panel. The Award Winners will receive an all-expenses paid trip to
Washington, DC, for a screening of their film and will have the opportunity to
attend a series of networking and learning events organized by the Social
Development Department of the World Bank in December 2008. [Film contest]
