Global Youth Video Competition 2012

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) works to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. 
Each year, the OECD Forum brings together all stakeholders to discuss the hottest issues on the international agenda. They are currently accepting applications from young people to make a short video about "Education and Skills" and win a trip to the OECD Forum.

The Competition
To enter the competition, make a short video (no more than 3 minutes) on the theme of Education and SkillsComplete and submit this electronic Registration Form.
Education and Skills - what are the big issues today?
  • Learning the right skills to get a job,
  • Bridging the 'digital divide',
  • Tackling inequality in access to education and training,
  • Inspiring creativity and innovation,
  • ... or something else?
You must be aged 18-25 years during the period of this competition (14 December 2011 to 31 March 2012). If you are a member of OECD staff (either permanent or temporary, current or former), intern, contractor, sponsor, or an immediate family member of any of the foregoing, you may participate, but are not eligible to win.

The Prize
The video author (or a nominated representative, if a team effort) of each winning video will be invited to Paris to attend the OECD Forum on 22-24 May 2012. Travel costs to and from Paris, hotel accommodation and a living allowance will be provided for the duration of the Forum.

Selection Criteria
Qualifying Videos would be judged by a jury based on their creativity, originality, message content and overall presentation (sound and picture quality).
Three winners would be selected and announced on 16 April 2011. They would be notified by e-mail, as well as published on the OECD competition website.

The competition closes at midnight (Paris time) on 31 March 2012.
