National Geographic Channel's "Preserve Our Planet" college film and PSA contest is back for its second year. We attended the awards ceremony for last year's competition and we were impressed with the submissions.
This year's core idea is "Together We Can Make a Difference." The National Geographic is looking for submissions that reflect the value of working together to preserve and protect the living habitats that are all around us.
The contest is also sponsored by ecoAmerica and MonsterTrak's GreenCareers. The prizes for the contest are $5,000 for first place film, $3,000 for the first place PSA, $1,500 for the audience choice film and $1,000 for the audience choice PSA. The winners of the contest will also be flown to Washington, DC to have their work screened at the kick-off event of the annual gathering of National Geographic Explorers in June of 2009.
