Calling all student photographers and filmmakers interested in sustainability of the Chesapeake Bay — there’s a contest right up your alley offered by SustainaFest.
Filmmakers and photographers are being asked to enter the unique 2014 SustainaFest 360 Film & Photo Contest. Winners will be featured at SustainaFest 2014 Fall Film Festival on Oct. 25th at Indian Creek Upper School.
SustainaFest is seeking striking digital media highlighting sustainability in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Of particular interest are entries revealing something unique to the watershed and films/photographs telling a story incorporating social, economic and environmental elements are a plus.
Submissions must be created and entered within the 360 hour/15 day contest window starting 12:01 a.m. Sept. 17, 2014 through 11:59 p.m. Oct. 1, 2014. Entries must be created within the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
The 360 Contest is open to contestants in two classifications: Students and Open Call. The student classification is restricted to students who attend:
- Baltimore Lab School
- Commodore John Rogers School
- Crossroads School
- Indian Creek School
- The Key School
Categories within that classification include lower, middle and upper school age groups.
The Open Call classification is open to all artists, regardless of age, residence or citizenship, except those who qualify under the Student Classification.
Submissions must be uploaded electronically at www.sustainafest.org/360contest.
For complete rules & regulations check the SustainaFest contest website.
