Sony Pictures Television has launched an environmental short film competition.
The Picture This Festival for the Environment will curate short videos from contests held by Sony networks around the world and select a grand prize winner at an all-day event at the Sony Pictures Studios in Los Angeles this autumn.
The PictureThis Festival aims to share the stories of successful endeavors or actions that could lead to a better, environmentally sound world.
Eight Sony participating network groups will accept entries from countries in their territories which will be judged by a panel of experts.
The regional winner in each territory will be flown to Los Angeles for a day of events and a Hollywood screening on the Sony Pictures lot in October, when a global winner will be announced. Winners will be chosen based on the power of their storytelling and their illustration of the Picture This campaign: Picture a Better World.
The grand prize winner will receive $5,000 as well as a Sony 4K package including a 55” 4K TV and a Sony – Alpha a6300 Mirrorless Camera, courtesy of Sony Electronics.
