Shoot by Youth video competition is like the triple chocolate cookies – with one bite you receive three tastes as each winning team prize is composed by three components:
Each winning team will receive the equivalent of up to EUR 500 in order to realize the solution represented in the winning video. This microgrant will be the team’s budget that can help to solve the problem within the local community.
After the winning team realizes the solution proposed in the video and shows the results of their actions, they will reach the second component of the award – EUR 500 for the team. It’s up to the team to decide how and for what they will spend the money award.
Each team member from finalists teams (top 5 videos that will be evaluated by the international jury) will get an exclusive invitation to participate in national or international events for young people. During the various events the competitors will get the chance to meet new people, show their videos in front of other people and get the opportunity to learn while having fun.
