PLURAL+ Youth Video Festival 2014 – Call for Entries

The Call for Entries of the PLURAL+ Youth Video Festival 2014 has recently been opened and young video-makers around the world are invited to submit their works.

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) again invite the world’s youth (9-25) to submit original and creative videos focusing on PLURAL+ themes: migration, diversity and social inclusion.

Last year, PLURAL+ received a record-breaking 254 videos from 71 countries and twenty-six (26) videos were selected as winning.

Young people up to 25 years old are invited to submit short videos of five minutes maximum in length that address key challenges related to migrant integration, inclusiveness, identity, diversity, human rights and social cohesiveness, both at local and global levels.

People appearing in the submitted video do not have to be youth. However the videos must reflect the youth’s opinions or reflections about migration, diversity and social inclusion.

The PLURAL+ Jury Award prizes will be awarded in three (3) age-based categories:

  • 9 to 12 years old
  • 13 to 17 years old
  • 18 to 25 years old

The three (3) winners will each receive US$1,000.

A prestigious international jury will announce the winners in New York during an event hosted at the Paley Center for Media early in December 2014.
