“Nepal is experiencing a demographic dividend for the first time in its history. Most young people in the country are digitally connected and social media savvy. They are eager to shape their own and Nepal’s destiny. Via this competition, we hope to bring attention to their dreams” says Roshan Ghimire, Director of Operations and Partnerships at Code for Nepal as he invites submissions for “KATA NEPAL?” short video competition.
The competition which I previously judged is simple. It’s asking for you to produce a three-minute long story (max 180 seconds) which can be in the form of a short film, poem, song or a single act that showcases your vision and aspiration for Nepal. Emphasising on promoting civic engagement and the culture of public debate and discussion, Code for Nepal’s “Kata Nepal?” hopes to create that conversation through the competition and the videos which will be judged by Subina Shrestha/Al-Jazeera, Sumana Shrestha/Carpool Kathmandu/Medication for Nepal, Rubeena Mahato/Writer, Sachin Ghimire/Filmmaker, Prabhat Jha/Reporter and Kanchan Amatya/Activist.
Interested individuals have till 31st December to send in their submission with the final result to be announced on 14th February 2018. The first prize will be Nrs 20,000 and a certificate followed by Nrs 7,000 second prize and a certificate and Nrs 3,000 third prize and a certificate.
