Young Jamaicans have until October 4 to submit entries to a short film competition, under the theme: 'My Environment: a heritage to be protected'.
The competition is being sponsored by the European Union (EU) Delegation to Jamaica.
The winner in the category of Best Overall film will receive a trip to Europe to participate in a reputable training workshop in the area of film making.
Sectional prizes will include an ipad, a MacBook computer and a digital camera for the categories of Best Writing/Best Storytelling, Best Videography and Best Editing.
All participants will receive a certificate of participation and the top four films will be posted on the Delegation's website.
Althea Buchanan, Communication Specialist with the EU Delegation, said the main objective of the competition is to help young people, 18 to 25 years, utilise available technologies to create employment for themselves and to raise awareness about environment protection.
