Apple and the Redford Center have partnered together for the second annual Redford Center Stories Challenge, a youth filmmaking challenge that aims to put a spotlight on environmental justice.
As reported by Variety, students will use Apple's Clips app to create stories that will be shared on a platform created by the company.
Lisa Jackson, Apple's Vice President of Environment, Policy and Social Initiatives, says that the company is honored to partner with the Redford Center, an organization founded by actor Robert Redford and his son that aims to create environmental change through film.
Judges for the challenge will include "Jackson, Robert Redford, Sibylle Szaggars Redford, Dylan Redford, co-founder of Future Coalition Katie Eder, filmmaker Faith Briggs and Animal Planet host Coyote Peterson." The results will be celebrated on Earth Day with more than $10,000 given away in prize packages.
Jill Tidman, executive director at The Redford Center, said that the fight for environmental justice will only succeed with the next generation of creators, and the challenge is a way to shine a light on those creatives.
Submissions for the challenge are due by March 31 and is free and open to all applicants. You can sign up at The Redford Center.
