The Economist Films unit has launched a global video contest called A Minute to Change the World. Participants are invited to submit an idea in video format that will answer the question: “What is the one thing you would change to build a more open world—and how would you go about it?”
Entries can be as simple as a filmed monologue or as complex as a 3D animation. The winner will be chosen by a group of Economist judges.
The contest is aimed at people aged 16 and older. The deadline for submissions is August 1st 2018. A selection of entries will be published on The Economist’s Open Future site and the winner will be invited to participate in the Open Future Festival on September 15th to be held simultaneously in New York, London or Hong Kong, with air travel and hotel paid for by The Economist.
Details on the contest and how to enter can be found here.
