The International Secretariat on Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) has launched the video competition called “Are you seeing results from natural resources in your country?” Regardless if the country is implementing the EITI or not, the competition is open for public.
The purpose of the videos is to show how EITI changes the country, how it improves accountability and stimulates public debates, how people and organisations in resource rich countries are using - or can use - information about the payments from oil, gas, mining and other extractive companies. The video should serve as a tool to generate interest and excitement in the EITI, to raise awareness about the Initiative and spread EITI philosophy.
The winner will receive the EITI Chair Award, and a cash prize of US$ 5,000.
All videos must be submitted before 31 December 2012 to the International Secretariat.
