Offer: International Video Competition for Hunger


Welcome to "hunger bytes! " The international video competition for inspired filmmakers - hosted by the World Food Programme, in partnership with YouTube. Starting October 16, filmmakers around the world are invited to submit short videos about hunger.

This year the world is reaching an historic milestone – and not a good one. By the end of 2009, over 1 billion people will be suffering from hunger. In a world of 6.8 billion, that means 1 out of 7 people will soon be undernourished. Every day, 14,000 children die of hunger-related causes – or to put it another way – one child dies of hunger every six seconds…

Acceptable? We don’t think so…

It’s time to make some noise! The online billion – (that’s you, by the way) – has to step up and help the hungry billion… How? By spreading the word, and by making people think…

We need you to make the edgiest, most provocative videos about hunger. Whatever it takes to make people think, and to change attitudes. The videos with the most views will be judged by a celebrity jury and the winner will get to travel to a WFP project.

There are no age limits this year, because there are no age limits to hunger! The only limitation is the length of your video. Your video should be 30–60 seconds long. The closing date for entries is midnight, December 31st 2009.
