No to Be Outdone, EU-OSHA Offers Healthy Workplaces Film Award

This is the third consecutive year for this program, in fact. OSHA is currently running a photo contest of its own.

For the third consecutive year, the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) is staging its Healthy Workplaces Film Award. A prize 8,000 euros will be awarded for the best documentary on work-related topics. Entries are due by July 10. The winner will be announced at the International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film in October.

This logo invites entries in the EU-OSHA 2010 film contest.“Through sponsoring the award, we are looking to promote the importance of safe and healthy workplaces across Europe in a thought-provoking way,” said EU-OSHA Director Jukka Takala. “By challenging and encouraging filmmakers to create and showcase documentaries on the topic, we are bringing these key messages to a wider audience through an informative, yet imaginative means. The films highlight the importance of workplace safety through, documenting real-life experiences.”

Previous entries have covered a range of work-related topics, including the physical, psychological and economic consequences of unfavorable working conditions. The 2010 award was presented to Czech Director Tomas Kudrna for his film about a Kyrgyzstan gold mine, All That Glitters. "The film shows the importance of strict safety precautions when working at altitude with dangerous chemicals to extract gold from rock. It was a great honor to receive the award to bring this topic to the fore," he said.

A thousand copies of the winning film will be produced in 22 EU languages, plus Norwegian and Icelandic, by EU-OSHA and distributed across Europe.

The winning film will be selected by an international jury. For more information, visit this website or www.dok-leipzig.de.
