Do you like making videos?
Are you between the ages of 14 and 21?
Would you like a chance to win a cash prize
and international recognition?
Every two years, the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC) holds an international short video competition. Young people, ages 14-21, are invited to submit 5-minute videos about their World Heritage City reflecting on the year’s theme. The videos are evaluated in two age groups, 14-17 years old and 18-21 years old, and cash prizes are awarded to the winners.
The competition is held in two stages:
- Local Stage: Young people submit their videos about Philadelphia and one local winner is chosen in each age category.
- International Stage: The OWHC evaluates the videos submitted by each World Heritage City, including Philadelphia. One international winner is chosen in each age category and awarded a cash prize.
- Age 14-17 Prize: $1,500 CA (about $1,180 USD)
- Age 18-21 Prize: $3,000 CA (about $2,360 USD)
The deadline to submit your video
for consideration at the local stage is
MAY 1, 2021
and to submit your video by May 1st.
