The award is open to video documentaries of a maximum duration of 60 minutes and video clips of a maximum duration of 5 minutes.
Works may be produced in English, French, Italian, Spanish or Portuguese, the leadership of the organization says, and explains, “In the case of a different language, subtitles must be inserted in one of these five languages.”
Harambee international says that the amount of the award, which is subject to the tax obligations in force is EURO 2,500 for video reportages and video documentaries and EURO 1,000 for video-clips.
Registration is done by filling in the form online at www.harambee-africa.org, the organization reports, adding that each participant will have to upload their video on Youtube.com, indicating in the online entry form the link to view the video.
“The same form will ask for personal information and to attach a certificate attesting to the authenticity and ownership of the product; authorization from the owner of the commercial rights to the work submitted, allowing it to be shown during the award ceremony and published on Harambee’s website and social networks,” the Rome-based organization reports, and adds, “The holder of the rights will be cited appropriately.”
