The Witnessing Change Video Competition invites documentarians to tell the stories of climate change from their own community in short video format. The videos focus attention toward the local and the present, with testimony and imagery that illustrate how climate change is already shaping the lives of Americans. Winners receive cash prizes. If you are interested in entering the 2018 competition, please sign up for our email list at the bottom of this page – you will be the first to know when the next round opens. Keep your eyes on this page for our 2017 winners which deal with the way that Lyme disease and melting snow have impacted American communities. In the meantime, share your thoughts with us about how you are #WitnessingChange on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
