Last call for entries to local green film contest

23 September 2008

Linden Hills Power & Light (LHP&L) a non-profit, community-based environmental organization, just sent out a reminder that there’s just a few weeks left before the October 8 deadline for submissions in their Green Carpet digital video Contest.

Amateur and professional videos are equally welcome and monetary prizes will be awarded in three categories.  Prizes include a grand prize of $500, three runner-up prizes of $300 and three honorable mention prizes of $150. In addition to winning monetary prizes, winning entries will be shown on TV and sponsoring websites as well as at a “Green Carpet” screening on Thursday October 23rd at 7pm.

Entries should focus on one of the following themes:

  1. Promoting the Minnesota Energy Challenge;
  2. Ways to combat climate change; and
  3. General environmental themes such as energy conservation, recycling, waste reduction,  anaerobic digestion, or recycling organic material.

So get creative: drama, comedy, trailer, spoof, documentary, live action, claymation, music videos, etc.  You can enter as many submissions as you’d like as long as they are between 30 seconds and 2 minutes.  Entries will be judged on accuracy of information and creativity rather than production values, so no worries about making something look “perfect.”  Instead, focus on your message!


Celebrity judges include Polar Explorer and educator Will Steger; WCCO anchors Amelia Santaniello and Frank Vascellaro and Southwest Journal Editor Sarah McKenzie.  For full rules, requirements and more information, visit!  And good luck!
