This is for all you filmmakers out there.
International World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of
focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the
sustainable management of freshwater resources.
For the World Water Day this year the India Water Portal is organizing a
video contest – The Lost lakes of Bangalore
The Lost Lakes of Bangalore is a project by India Water Portal to document
Bengaluru¹s many tanks and lakes which have vanished with urbanization and
growth. As part of this project India Water Portal is organizing a video
contest to document this aspect of Bengaluru’s history.
The contest is to create a short film (up to 10 minutes) that documents any
particular lost lake of Bengaluru
The documentation can take the form of interviews with people, photo and
video clipping of the state of the lake now coupled with any footage of the
past state of the lake. The film could investigate the story of how the lake
originally was, and the circumstances that resulted in the lake vanishing
and the current state of the lake.
The contest is divided into two categories: Students and General
The winning team in the Student category will get a prize of Rs. 15,000/-.
All entries that are found to meet a minimum quality level will be awarded a
prize of Rs 1,000/- and a certificate of participation
The winning team in the general category will get a prize of Rs 15,000/-
