Hi everyone,
Victoria from Reel Earth Environmental Film Festival would like us all to know about this competition which has some fabulous prizes and is a great opportunity for budding film-makers out there to get your stuff noticed! Competition closes 4th May so it’s the perfect school holiday project! Read the attached flier and talk to Victoria if you have any queries.

The Horizons EF-FACTOR Enviro short film competition is about engaging young people with the environment through film

  • They make a short (2min) environmental film on ‘something beginning with c’ – they can be as creative as they want with this!
  • Results based partly on how many people ‘like’ it on our Facebook page, and partly on judges assessment
  • The environmental message is as important as the film values
  • Entrants must live in the Horizons Regional Council area
  • Three Age groups:

    • Year 1 – 6 (prize is $329 Motorola Telecom Fire Smart phone)
    • Year 7-13 (prize is $929 Nokia Lumina 800 Telecom Smart phone)
    • 21 and under (prize is $929 Nokia Lumina 800 Telecom Smart phone)
    • PLUS 10x prizes of Telecom $20 prepaid vouchers
  • Details & entry at:

  • Schools of entrants get first rights to free session from REEL EARTH visiting environmental filmmakers. Between Mon 14 & Fri 18 May, screening of enviro film + filmmaker talks, delivered at your school.
  • Schools of winners receive our ‘schools programme’ delivered free at their convenience: selection of short enviro films + educator visit to your school
