    The Fifth Edition of Globo Verde Dominicano is now open for submissions
    Santo Domingo, February 23, 2016

    The Dominican Film Festival (DREFF) is pleased to announce the fifth edition of the first audiovisual competition in the area of environment and sustainable development in the Dominican Republic, the Globo Verde Dominicano Award. This year’s competition will include 4 categories: the recently added Globo Verde Junior, Public Service Announcement, Short Film and Photography. Information on rules and registration forms are available at www.globoverdedominicano.org .

    The Globo Verde Dominicano Award is a unique opportunity for filmmakers, students and young professionals who want to venture into a fairly uncharted area in the Dominican Republic -the creation of environmental audiovisual material- as well as to show their work to a national and international audience as part of each edition of the Dominican Republic Environmental Film Festival, which is held every September, and at other international festivals.

    Starting immediately, the contest is formally open and will be accepting entries until July 31, 2016, except for the category of Globo Verde Junior, which deadline is May 31. The electronic registration form is available on the competition website at www.globoverdedominicano.org where the rules for each category can also be found. Those interested in obtaining additional information can submit their questions via social networks on Facebook and Twitter (@GloboVerdeDR), or via email at info@globoverdedominicano.org .

    In addition to cash prizes and equipment contestants will receive a lot of promotion for their works through all web pages related to the DREFF, as well as at film festivals around the world. This year, the awards are the following. Short Film Category: trip to an international environmental film festival with the opportunity to screen the short and a certificate for $2,000 in technical equipment. Public Service Announcement Category: A 15-inch Macbook Pro laptop (2.2 GHz, with retina display screen). Photography Category: A certificate for $1,000 in technical equipment. Globo Verde Junior Category: a certificate for $1,000 in technical equipment.

    Entries participating in the Globo Verde Dominicano Award will be judged by a jury made of national and international professionals. The winners of the competition will be announced at a special ceremony with nationally and internationally renowned filmmakers and environmental experts, in the framework of the 6th Dominican Republic Environmental Film Festival, which will take place September 13-18 in 11 cities.

    Fotography The selected theme for 2016 is “Yo soy sostenible” (I’m sustainable) and seeks to promote the program of the United Nations, including the Agenda 2030 for sustainable development and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. For more information and ideas on these issues, visit the DREFF blog (blog.dreff.org). More specifically it aims at fostering reflection on the reality of the Dominican environment and sustainable development and their implications for the future, and to generate proposals for the improvement of the problems faced by the country in the areas of environment and sustainable development through the production of films and photography.

    About the Globo Verde Dominicano Award

    Globo Verde Dominicano Award, presented during the Dominican Republic Environmental Film Festival, recognizes audiovisual materials with an environmental content that have been created by Dominican students and young professionals in the areas of cinema, photography, advertising, or related fields. The program encourages Dominican youth to create audiovisual materials that raise awareness about the importance of the environment and sustainable development. The competition began in 2012 with the categories of Short Film and Public Service Announcement, and, in 2014, added a new category in the area of Photography. Last year, with the aim of giving an opportunity to young people and to promote the use of new technologies, the Globo Verde Junior category, exclusively for high school students, was launched.
