OSH Independent Film Festival Contest
We are now accepting applications for the Occupational Safety and Health Independent Film Festival Contest!
The OSH Independent Film Festival involves ASSE members shooting a short film (2.5 minutes or less), which is then uploaded on YouTube and promoted on Twitter. The purpose of this contest is to raise awareness and the profile of occupational safety and health. Think of it as a Public Service Announcement!
Occupational Safety and Health is a broad area, and the film produced does not necessarily need to involve all aspects of the profession. You might find it difficult to briefly explain the breadth of your work to coworkers, high school students, friends, and family members. Think of an interesting way to inform and entertain. You may choose one single element of the vocation to focus on, or look at its impact on businesses around the world, or what a job as a safety and health professional includes, or all the above to promote your college or university program. All of these elements help to raise the profile of the profession. Therefore, exercise professional judgment while making your film. Submissions that display unreasonably risky scenes or behaviors will not be considered.
The winners will be announced by a representative of Region 2 on April 22, 2016 at the ROC Networking event and will be presented with a $500 cash prize. The mission of the OSH Independent Film Festival is not only to have fun, but to take the winning films and share them with schools to educate students at the elementary, middle, high, and university levels, about the dynamic field safety and health and to plant seeds with the hope of inspiring the next generation of OSH professionals. Contestants who submit will gain extra points in the judging process if the film is appropriate for educating kids about OSH.
