ADB My View H2O

Make a Video. Make a Difference. Join the ADB My View H2O video contest and you may win 2,500 dollars cash prize and bring honor to your country as well.

My View is a micro documentary competition for anyone who wants to be seen and heard. This contest is open to any citizen of any one of ADB's 67 member countries.

You make a 1 to 5 minute digital film all about water, we’ll get the world to watch it and you can win major cash prizes.

Your film can be in any digital video format – you can even use your mobile phone. We accept films in any genre, including but not limited to animation, documentary, drama, experimental, art, testimonial, etc.

Videos can be in any language, though contestants are strongly encouraged to include subtitles and a full length script in English, in order to facilitate public outreach and the contest process.

Spring into action and make your own change!
