2012 Global Youth Video Competition on Education and Skills

Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) works to promote policies that are expected to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. OECD is currently inviting video submissions for the 2012 Global Youth Video Competition. Participants are required to send a short video of not more than 3 minutes on the theme of the competition.


Competition Theme

Education and Skills – what are the big issues today:

  • Learning the right skills to get a job?
  • Bridging the ‘digital divide’?
  • Tackling inequality in access to education and training?
  • Inspiring creativity and innovation?


The Prize

The video author (or a nominated representative, if a team effort) of each winning video will be invited to Paris to attend the OECD Forum on 22nd – 24th May 2012. Travel costs to and from Paris, hotel accommodation and a living allowance will be provided for the duration of the Forum. The Prize will be awarded to three winning videos selected by Jury. If a winning video is a group effort, then a nominated representative will be invited to Paris.

  • Any spoken language used in your video that is not English or French must be accompanied by the relevant subtitles in English or French.
