We asked aspiring filmmakers from all backgrounds to promote the protection and preservation of our environment by submitting a great story told in a short video that could positively impact the planet. Regional judges have chosen local finalists based on the power of their storytelling and their illustration of the Picture This campaign theme, “Picture a Better World”. The 7 finalists won a VIP trip to Los Angeles for the Picture This Festival event on Tuesday, October 25th for a chance to win the Grand Prize: $5,000 and a Sony 4K package that includes a 55” Sony 4K TV and a Sony Alpha a6300 mirrorless camera.
