Tvebiomovies is a film competition now in its sixth year, and open to people around the world with access to a camera. Think about a project or campaign you are involved in to combat climate change, an action which convinced your parents, school or college to take climate action, a lobbying of your elected members of parliament or your city leaders. Whatever is making a difference, turn it into a snappy concise video and join the competition. Some key questions to answer are:

  • Why did you choose to engage in this climate action?
  • What were some of the key things that took place?
  • What were some of the successes?
  • Where did these successes occur (locally, nationally or internationally)?
  • How can youth from similar countries replicate the activities that have been implemented?


This content is open for people between 18 and 30 year old. Tvebiomovies is looking for creative inspirational stories about your action on climate change. The winning entries being judged by our panel will take into account the following criteria:

  • Content: clearness and effectiveness of the video in documenting a story about climate change, promoting action and/or offering new solutions;
  • Innovation, originality, and impact: telling a climate story in a fresh and unusual way, appealing to a broad and diverse audience and encouraging further thought and action;
  • Technical expertise: quality of camera and audio work, effectiveness of editing and strength of script.


  • Round trip to COP21/CMP11 in Paris, France from 30 November to 11 December 2015 (including accommodation and other expenses);
  • Position as a youth reporter for COP21/CMP11, responsible for assisting UNFCCC Newsroom team with videos, articles and social media posts.
