The PLURAL+ Video Festival is an empowering tool for young people to speak out about what they think of migration and diversity, using their own views and voices. The PLURAL+ Video Festival gives youth a platform to say what they think and to make themselves heard by people from all over the world.
Videos should address the following issues:
* recognize youth as agents of social change in a world often characterized by intolerance, and cultural and religious divisions.
* involve youth in addressing questions on migrant integration, inclusiveness, identity, diversity, human rights and social inclusion wherever they be in the world.
* encourage the practical contributions of young people in not just identifying constraints, but also in promoting a climate of respect and appreciation for each other.
The PLURAL+ JURY AWARD prizes will be awarded in three (3) age-based categories:
* 9 to 12 years old
* 13 to 17 years old
* 18 to 25 years old
Applicants must be youth between the ages of 9-25. He/she must be the responsible for submitting the video.
