UNEP's Global Video Competition on Ozone Layer Protection


UNEP Global Video Awards

The 2001 Global Video Competition was organized by UNEP DTIE's OzonAction Programme with support provided by the Multilateral Fund for the Implementation of the Montreal Protocol. It was open to adults living in developing countries that are Party to the Montreal Protocol. Countries organized national competitions and selected the best entries. Ten regional finalists were selected from among the national winners. The films were judged by a jury led by Mr. Ivan Hattingh, Chairman of the Board of the Television Trust for the Environment (TVE) and Wildscreen, a UK-based environmental film festival. The winners were announced on October 19 2001 during the 13th Meeting of the Parties to the Montreal Protocol in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

The international community has won several battles in ozone layer protection, but the war is far from over. News journalists, independent producers and the general public all have a responsibility to ensure that the race to protect the ozone layer does not disappear from the headlines. UNEP's Global Video Competition is your chance to use your knowledge, media firepower and creativity to help us bring the ongoing story of the planet's greatest achievement in international environmental co-operation home to us all.
