UNESCO 'If I Were...' Video Contest
What would your life be like if you were somebody else?
iPad Mini

Due March 12th, 2017 - UNESCO is responsible for coordinating international cooperation in education, science, culture and communication. It strengthens the ties between nations and societies and mobilizes the wider public so that each child and citizen:

What would your life be like if you were somebody else? Have you ever imagined stepping into someone else’s shoes? What if that person was living next door? How would you feel? How would you react to a given situation? Through this contest, you can choose who you would like to be: you can choose to be anyone from your prime minister to your next door baker, and this only with a simple camera.

“If I were…” invites you to experiment with somebody else’s life through a video film or a powerful photo made by yourself to illustrate your feelings if you were this person. Change your perspective and express yourself differently. A life experience that you will never forget! Put your character in an everyday situation and reflect her/his feelings through a meaningful visual art expression. The narrative, if any, should be in English, French, Spanish or Arabic. If you are among the winners, you will have to subtitle your video in English.

You have total creative freedom. However, you must keep in mind the international position of UNESCO and avoid any specific reference which might counter the values promoted by the Organization. See more about UNESCO’s values on UNESCO’s website.

Entries should be no more than 1 minute in length.
