Vienna, Austria — For the fifth time, ISWA has conducted an online short-video competition: the “ISWA Video Award”. This year`s theme of the contest was ‘No time to Waste’, also the theme of this year’s ISWA World Congress in Baltimore, USA, 25-27 September.
Entrants were invited to explore the theme – of course related to the general topic ‘waste’ as one of the major global problems of our society – in an original, witty way. Whether documentary, fiction, animation or a combination thereof – the decision about the film genre as well as the technical realisation has been left up to the contestants.
The jury had an extensive selection of videos to assess. 34 videos were put forward from 15 different countries and the jury found it difficult to determine an overall winner from those put forward. But finally the jury found that the following entries were the best of the submissions put forward for the ISWA Video Award in 2017:
First place and winner of the ISWA Video Award 2017:
“The Bigger Picture”, by Isabelle Sundiang, Philippines
“Thinking About Waste”, by Nathan Guymon, USA
“Pace”, by Alexis Coladilla, Philippines
The presentation of the award will take place at the ISWA World Congress in Baltimore, USA, 25 to 27 September 2017.
