Alltech is launching the first YouTube Farming Film Festival, which tasks people with making a video focusing on an idea or technology that helps farmers meet the challenges in their career, in connection with the Alltech 27th Annual International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium.
Participants in the Farming Film Festival may enter by uploading their video to YouTube and emailing the link to [email protected]. Winners will be chosen by a panel of science and agriculture journalists based on creativity, quality of video, story interest and number of views and will be awarded up to $2,000 cash.
The deadline for submission is May 13.
“Emerging new media such as YouTube and other social media outlets have been game changers for many in the agriculture industry,” said Dr. Pearse Lyons, president and founder of Alltech. “Sharing these game-changing stories with others ignites a new wave of hope and innovation, and that’s what we hope to do with the Farming Film Festival.”
