Presented by actor Jared Turner, TVNZ 7 presents…The Outlook For Someday 2011 will be broadcast in five programmes, starting Monday 12 December at 6.30pm.
The films tackle subjects ranging from pollution and deforestation to the meaning of Kaitiaki and how to be a conscious shopper. They have been made by individuals and teams ranging in age from 6 to 24 years old from Dunedin in the South to the Karikari Peninsula in the North. They were chosen from a record 153 entries, which more than 600 young people had taken part in making.
Viewers will be encouraged after each programme to vote for The Body Shop Audience Favourite. The maker(s) of the film that wins the vote will receive a laptop, while 10 randomly chosen voters will win The Body Shop vouchers. Voting closes at 5pm on Sunday 18 December at The Outlook for Someday website. www.theoutlookforsomeday.net
Now in its fifth year, The Outlook for Someday challenge is to make a short sustainability related film. It can be any genre, filmed with any camera and any length, up to five minutes. Anyone up to age 24 can enter, either individually or in a team. Earlier this year The Outlook for Someday was endorsed by UNESCO as a project of the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development.
The five programmes featuring the winning films will screen at 6.30pm each night, from Monday 12 to Friday 16 December. Each programme will also be repeated the following day at 12.30pm.
