Filming Your World: A Global Video Competition

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

What is the one thing about your life and your surroundings that you want the whole world to know about? The BBC World Service is running a video competition called "MyWorld" that asks people to send in a  two-minute of the world from their perspective. The entries will be judged by filmmakers from different continents and the winning entrants will have their videos broadcast on the BBC.

The BBC's Simon Pitts explains the project. We also hear from two video contributors: Ron Geren Los Angeles, whose video tells the story of an important figure in his life. Matome Senyolo of Johannesburg created a love letter to her township.

Find out how to enter.
