The Caldera Environment Centre is sponsoring a film competition to be screened in conjunction with World Environment Day, June 2013. The theme for the competition is ‘Your Environment’, and entries can be about anything that makes up your environment: whether it is the natural environment, the home, urban, school, work or other environment that is important to people living in the Tweed. While this is aiming towards documentary style entries, we are open to more creative fictional entries so long as they keep to the theme of ‘your environment’.

Entries are open to everyone in the Tweed (and surrounding areas) and an entry form and conditions of entry are available on the CEC website (www.calderaenvironmentcentre.org). Entry fee is $10 and the closing date for entries is Friday, May 3. Prizes include a $100 gift voucher from the CEC and the irrevocable and prestigious honour of being crowned champion filmmaker of the Tweed. There will be two divisions, one for youth (under 18 years) and one for adults (over 18 years). Winning entries and runners-up will be screened at the Regent cinema in a gala event early June to coincide with the CEC’s World Environment Day celebration (date TBA).

CEC coordinator Sam Dawson says, ‘The Film competition is about capturing a snapshot of the Tweed community and its environment in 2013. The word environment can have different meanings to people and we are interested in seeing how people live, interact and are involved in their local “environments”. The CEC is interested in tapping into the creative potential of local people and sharing this with the rest of the community.’

The entry fee is $10, with all profits (after expenses) going to the CEC. All entries must include the entry fee and be submitted as a DVD in either AVI or MP4 format.

For further information contact Sam Dawson on 02 6672 7765, or email [email protected].
