CDM African Radio Contest 2013

Changing Lives Changing Lives Changing Lives

Radio Contest 2013 The UNFCCC secretariat is pleased to announce the launch of CDM African Radio Contest 2013. This year, the competition's sponsors have generously offered a $2,000 prize for the winners of the contest.

Under the theme "Changing Lives", the contest aims to spread the word about the benefits of the CDM in Africa and especially in under-represented regions of the continent. Broadcasters and freelancers from Africa are invited to grab their microphone and recording device and create a compelling radio story that answers the following question: "How can my community/city/country benefit from the CDM?"

Radio stories will be judged on originality, technical excellence, clarity of message, thoroughness of investigation, level of professionalism and presentation skills. The "Wow Factor" is also very important, so we’ll be looking for radio stories able to generate and hold interest.

The stories can fall into two categories:

    (1) Those that relate to a specific, "registered" CDM project (see information below on how to locate registered projects); and
    (2) Those that do not relate to a specific registered project, but which explore the potential benefits of CDM for a community/city/country (see information below on how to locate the offices of CDM designated national authorities).

The deadline to submit your stories is 31 October 2013. For more details on the contest, please read the Terms and Conditions
