Due to the large number of last minute submissions and by popular demand, the Sustainable Thinking Platform is glad to announce the deadline for voting on our photo competition has been extended to midnight 24 May 2013.
Submissions – which closed on 30 April -will be initially rated in a first round by the online platform members. The shortlisted finalists will then be judged by a panel comprised of international journalists and industry representatives.
Following the enormous success of the last multimedia competition, VinylPlus has re-launched its Sustainable Thinking Platform, the online community for young people from all around the world to discuss and learn about sustainability issues. More than 2,500 people from over 90 different countries had signed up to join the 2010 edition.
Following detailed deliberations by the judging panel, the winners of the second edition of the Vinyl 2010 Sustainable Thinking Platform multimedia competition have been announced.
The Sustainable Thinking Platform has launched a multimedia competition aimed at people aged 18-30 years old from all around the world. Participants are allowed to submit a maximum of 1 essay, 3 pictures and 1 video.
There will be two editions during 2010, the first one running from 1 April until 31 July. Participants are asked to rate other members' work. To do that, simply click on an essay, picture or video and choose the number of stars you want to award. You will only be able to vote once for the same work but you can rate as many submissions as you want.
These votes will be used to select the finalists for our competition. From this selection, a professional panel of journalists and industry representatives will then judge who the winners are.
You will have the chance to win a laptop computer, photographic camera or camcorder depending on the category you are competing in. But that is not the only way you can win. If someone you tell about the competition wins, you will receive a 100 Euro gift certificate for Amazon.
So hurry up, join our community, upload your work and remember to tell your friends!
Before you upload your essay, photography or video, please make sure you have a short summary ready explaining what your work is about and the story behind it.
