Submit A Video, Save An Ocean

One World One Ocean's contest enlists teens to help tell the ocean's story...


The ocean advocacy group One World One Ocean is looking for the next up-and-coming filmmaker as part of their World Oceans Day Video Contest - open to all ocean enthusiasts in grades 7 - 12. Will it be you?

About the Contest
Any time between now and May 4, create a one-minute video about why the ocean is important and you could win $500 and a GoPro camera from One World One Ocean.

Prizes will be awarded by One World One Ocean to one grand prize winner as well as to winners in three sub-categories: Best Humorous Video, Best Music Video and Best Video from a Non-Coastal City. That's right, even if you're landlocked the ocean is important!

All submissions will be judged by Oscar-nominated filmmaker and One World One Ocean founder Greg MacGillivray. The top 10 videos will then be posted on One World One Ocean’s website on May 18 where the public will get a chance to vote for their favorite. Winning videos will be announced on June 8, which is World Oceans Day. Here is a link to their contest guidelines.
