We want to include you in our next project! We are looking for video submissions from people all over the world who are fighting for cleaner oceans and cetacean freedom. We are going to be creating a sharable “viral” video that will educate the general public about the state of our waterways and oceans. We encourage you to research the topic you are passionate about and provide information that will help raise awareness.
Things to consider:
- State your first name only and where you live (optional).
- Hold a sign that articulates what you care about. Some examples include: plastic pollution, over-fishing, run-off pollution, wild capture of cetaceans, shark finning, drive-hunt fisheries etc.
- Express clearly what you are trying to stop. For example, “My name is Jane, I live in New York and I want to stop shark finning now! Millions of sharks are killed senselessly just for their fins, thrown back into the ocean still alive. Entire shark populations are dwindling because they are not able to recuperate their numbers”
- Film your video in a quiet space with good lighting. Speak clearly and proudly so that we are able to add closed captioning on YouTube.
Please submit your videos to our email firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to title your email “Blue living video”. We will need you to include in the body of your email that you are giving us permission to use your video in our project. Submissions are due by August 31st at midnight pacific time. We look forward to reviewing your submissions and will include as many as possible!
