Southern Voices On Global Transitions Video Contest

The Global Development Network is partnering with the French Development Agency, AFD, to conduct an online video contest, on key development transitions taking place across the globe. The videos will tell the story of these transitions through the eyes of young researchers working in the Global South. If you are up to 40 years old and are a researcher from the Global South, apply by Sunday 4th July 2021.

The Agence Française de Developpement (AFD) and the Global Development Network (GDN) have joined hands to launch a global video contest targeting young researchers from the global south.

Young researchers from the global South are asked to communicate clearly and concisely about the societal challenges and dynamics they are studying.

Using a language that is appropriate for a wide audience of non-specialists, the videos should aim at bringing into public discussions quality and up-to-date knowledge on the key development transitions shaping our lives. 

Through a two-step competitive selection, the contest will shortlist up to 20 videos. All shortlisted participants who go through the revision and resubmission will compete for monetary prizes worth €6,000.

The deadline is on Sunday 4th July 2021.
