Age 8-22. Any Country, Any Issue, Up
To 4 Minutes.

A chance to tell your issues to the World Leaders on our VIP Jury.
Your Voice Matters!
World Leaders will be watching and listening to your concerns as we relaunch this iconic initiative.
You can be a part of making a difference!
A chance to tell your issues to World leaders. VIP Jurists include Hugh Jackman, Colin Powell, Senator John McCain, and leaders in media and technology, the arts, government and non-profit.
Film Your Issue has relaunched its record-breaking youth challenge for short videos on contemporary issues that matter to young people in the U.S., Canada and around the world.
We are not looking for whiz filmmakers. It’s about your own voice, originality, and the power of your message. Even video recording on a smartphone is fine. We want to know what issues are burning for youth. We want to encourage young people to be involved in current issues, to understand that their unique voice matters, that their voice can make a difference, and that leadership is listening to them.
Who Can Participate
Anyone age 8 to 22 at the time of video submission, from any country.
Try to keep it under 4 minutes. For maximum impact and engagement by Judges and public, 3 minutes is optimal. But we’re not setting firm length rules. It’s about impact.
Any format that gets your issue across, including:
narrative-style with multiple cuts, edits, storyline and script;
directly talking to camera with webcam or smartphone.
music video-style, with music, lyrics and images.
Remember: No gratuitous profanity, nudity, violence, personal or partisan attacks.
