EPA - Is My Environment Video Project

Still more on the use of video to promote or educate folks on environmental issues. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is looking for you and 15 seconds of your time and talent.

Here is the deal (i.e.) the rules from the EPA web site:

  • You may live anywhere and be a citizen of any country.
  • Videos must be 10-15 seconds long.
  • Videos must not contain violence, profanity, sex, indecent remarks or direct attacks on individuals or organizations.
  • The video must be your own original creation. No copyrighted music, video, or images may be used in submissions. If you display commercial products, obscure the label, logo, etc. so neither the manufacturer nor the specific product is recognizable. Videos containing links to commercial Web sites will not be accepted.
  • Videos must not infringe on any third party rights.
  • If we choose your clip, we will contact you through YouTube to provide the original video.
  • By submitting a video to this project, you grant to EPA a royalty-free license to copy, distribute, modify, display and perform publicly and otherwise use, and authorize others to use, your video for any educational purpose throughout the world and in any media.
  • EPA reserves the right to make your video available to the general public from its Web site and to distribute it to groups and any other organizations interested in showing it for educational purposes, including, but not limited to, on Internet sites, at conferences and events, on television, and other media outlets.
  • Entries must be received by 11:59 pm April 15th, 2010.
  • Please do not use the EPA seal or logo.
  • By submitting a video for this project, entrants agree to these rules. EPA will disqualify any entries it deems to contain material in violation of these rules.
  • EPA reserves the right to not create a compilation video if we receive an insufficient number of entries that comply with these rules.
You don't have to be a U.S. citizen. Anybody can participate. You can fetch the signs in a variety of languages from the EPA video contest page.
