OPPORTUNITIES / CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Seeking videos on sanitation and hygiene

Seeking videos on sanitation and hygiene

The Fifth World Water Forum is accepting video entries on sanitation
and hygiene for its International Water and Film Events, scheduled
for March 18 to 21 in Istanbul, Turkey. The submission deadline is
November 2.

The Forum, organized every three years by the International
Secretariat for Water (ISW) and the French Water Academy, will focus
on "Water, People and Sustainable Development" in 2009.

The Water and Film Events has a competition category for clips less
than 90 seconds long by producers ages 17 to 30 years old, films less
than 60 minutes long, and films of scientific and pedagogical nature.

Eligible films or documentaries must have been produced after January
1, 2005, and contain subtitles in English or be accompanied by a
transcription in English, French or Spanish.

Prizes range from US$1,000 to US$3,000. A special WASH prize,
supported by Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council, will
be given to documentaries on water supply, sanitation, and hygiene.

The winners will be announced during the World Water Forum, and pre-
selected films will be submitted to the Istanbul International Film
Festival in April.
