ISWA VIDEO AWARD 2019

"Marine Life?", by Maria Perlado, Spain (Winner 2019)
"Rapper Not Wrapper” by Gabriel Stein, Philippines (2nd Place 2019)
“Reality let's act NOW” by William Gonzalez, China (3rd Place 2019)

Each year ISWA Video Award invites content creators to explore different themes in waste management. The theme of ISWA Video Awards 2019 is raising awareness of plastic marine litter among the general public.


Entrants were invited to explore the theme of plastic marine litter prevention in context of what can be done within their own municipalities in an original, witty way. Whether documentary, fiction, animation or a combination thereof - the decision about the film genre as well as the technical realisation was left up to the contestant.
A total of 21 of video entries were received, hailing from communities directly impacted by the marine plastic pollution, as well as from high-income economies, where the knowledge of plastic impact on the environment commonly ends with plastic leaving consumer hands.


The judging panel consisting of Carlos Silva Filho, ISWA Vice President, Paul Davison, Managing Director of Proteus Communications Group, Aneta Pawlik, ISWA Communications and Marketing Manager, and Daniel Purchase, ISWA National Membership and Communications Manager, overwhelmingly voted in favour of a video titled “Marine Litter”, prepared by Maria Perlado from Madrid, Spain.

 

The 2019 edition of ISWA Video Awards focused on citizen activation, encouraging individuals to research and pay attention to what they can do to in their own municipality to tackle the issue of plastic pollution. ISWA works closely with decision-makers, industry representatives and waste management professionals, but we cannot forget that any waste management system will fail if the communities it’s supposed to serve do not separate or dispose of their waste properly”, commented Aneta Pawlik. 


The 2nd prize was awarded to “Rapper Not Wrapper” sent in by Gabriel Stein from Las Pinas, Philippines and the 3rd place went to “Reality let's act NOW” by William Gonzalez from Hong Kong, China.
