World Water Day gets 3-second film fest
Surfrider backs the 3-Second Movie Contest
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 26 February, 2013 : - - That dripping sink faucet often fades into white noise, but what most people don’t realize is that one leak can waste up to 20 gallons of water per day. To raise awareness about our world’s water issues and the small changes individuals can do to help, Surfrider Foundation is proud to bring back the '3 Second Movie Contest' presented by Teva and Finlandia Vodka.
Between now and March 15th, the Surfrider Foundation is challenging participants to capture the essence of water in just three seconds. The top movie selections will be compiled into a short set to release on March 22nd – World Water Day.
“Last year we saw a variety of submissions, from breathtaking scenic moments along the coast, to belly flops, snowboarding and river surfing,” said Surfrider Foundation Communications Manager Alexis Henry. “What was really great about all these videos is that they helped raise awareness about our world’s most precious resource in only three seconds.”
So what does water mean to you? Good, bad, or recreational, water is something different to everyone and we want to see it. Last year, Surfrider Foundation received over 160 submissions. This year the Foundation is looking to double that amount.
Between now and March 15, submit your video via Surfrider’s Facebook page for a chance to win one of three grand prize packages that include gear from Teva and a GoPro Hero camera. The winners will also be announced on March 22nd, World Water Day.
Founded in 1993 by the United Nations, World Water Day is a global observance that highlights the need for the care and management of the world’s water resources. The Surfrider Foundation celebrates World Water Day to help educate and drive awareness and support for its various clean water campaigns and programs.
