Epson launches short film contest for college students

Epson, in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources – Environmental Management Bureau and GREENducation Philippines, announced the launch of the 1st EcoVision Short Film Competition for students.

The inter-school video-making contest aims to tap the artistry and creativity of Filipino students in raising public understanding of the environment and its conservation through the power of public service announcement videos.

The competition aims to strengthen Epson’s commitment to the environment, as manifested not just through the innovation of reliable, recyclable, and energy-efficient products but also, its active participation in helping to inspire people to become more aware of pressing ecological issues.

“As a tech company, Epson believes that the youth, as the future leaders of society, has the power to influence others in advocating for the conservation of the environment,” said Donna Ferro, brand and communications head of Epson Philippines. 

“Through this initiative, we aim to empower them by providing a venue where they can showcase their own take in solving the most pressing environmental issues,” Ferro said.

For its first edition, the short film competition is looking for the best public service announcement videos that will serve as an informative tool for GREENducation Philippines, a youth-led group organized by DENR-EMB, in its mission to educate Filipinos about various eco-friendly solutions that Filipinos can follow and apply in their daily lives.

With the theme “Green Solutions for Everyday Life at Home, School, or Office,” the PSA video entries will showcase the importance of green solutions, which refer to the positive action of individuals and companies to ecological issues, caused by uncontrolled human activities.

“We are glad to partner with Epson Philippines for the first-ever EcoVision Short Film competition and showcase the work of talented Filipino students in our campaign for environmental protection. This initiative will help us inspire people to change their actions and take the necessary steps, no matter how big or small, to make a difference for the environment,” said Vermon Timbas, environmental specialist of DENR-EMB.

The 1st EcoVision Film Competition is open to all students (including the production members) at any year level and degree or course from colleges and universities in NCR, Region III, and Region IV-A.
