For a hundred years we tried to tell the Earth through images.

This is what we ask of you, students of all levels, up to University, which have a special interest for our planet, the planet on which we put our feet every day and who we may not know well.

Try to tell a piece of this planet, it doesn't necessarily need to be about a distant mountain or Australia; It can also be from the neighbourhood, from inside the house, in any form that you feel appropriate: as a cartoon, a video story, a voice narration or with photographs.

You need to pass on to others your curious impression, why it attracts you; participate to tell a little piece of ancient history of the planet on which we live.


What distinguishes this category from the others is the age of the competitors and the fact that they are students of any school.

There are no restrictions on the subjects. Similarly, all realization formats are approved: from a cartoon realized in first person to a voice narration.
Even photos and music can tell a fascinating geological phenomenon.

The imagination should not have any limits . . .

The jury will take into account the age difference, so you must not put younger students off, just because they will compete in the same category as university students.
