International Video Production Competition – 2021 Edition “New beginning. New vision. New city.”

Monday, March 1, 2021 - 8:00am - Tuesday, June 1, 2021 - 5:00pm

The OWHC is proud to renew for this 6th Edition the International Video Production Competition. This competition is intended for young people of two age groups: 14 and 17 years old and 18 and 21 years old. At the invitation of the cities that are part of the OWHC network and that have registered, the young people will be called upon to produce a video of a maximum duration of five minutes on a World Heritage City, and that will have to be published on the OWHC YouTube channel.

Frist, the videos produced by the young people will undergo a selection in their respective cities. Each city will choose a winning video for each of the participating age groups. The winning videos on the local level will then be submitted to an international jury that will determine one winner per age group. Both international winners will be awarded attractive prizes!


  • To make the young people acquire a better knowledge and awareness of world heritage
  • To convey to the young people a stronger sense of belonging and pride concerning world heritage
  • To allow young people to express themselves, through their personal vision, on world heritage in general as well as on that of their city or a visited city
  • To ensure that they are involved in the OWHC conservation and enhancement approach regarding cities recognized as treasures of mankind


“New beginning. New vision. New city.”: In this particular pandemic context, we all have to take a different look at what surrounds us. We have more time to explore our neighborhood, our city and all the little treasures and unusual details they contain. This context offers a golden opportunity for a new beginning, for a new way of seeing and appreciating our World Heritage. Take this opportunity to show us your new vision of your historic city. Has your city changed since the pandemic? How is it different? How will your city’s heritage be protected and enhanced when life returns to normal?
