For the sixth year, the Water Environment Federation (WEF) will host the StormTV Project. For 2017, StormTV again will be a competition. The competition is open to

  • short films and public service announcements for educating the public,
  • videos aimed at training the public, municipal staff, or stormwater professionals, and
  • short documentaries featuring not-for-profit or for-profit programs and projects.

The intention of the project has evolved to highlight the work of stormwater professionals utilizing video presentations to communicate and educate. The project seeks to collect and share examples of best practices in action for stormwater management.

Entry period open until June 12.

2017 Competition Details

Instead of having defined categories, this year StormTV will seek to identify the best elements and practices that appear in the submissions. The judges — primarily members of the Public Communication & Outreach Subcommittee and other members of the Water Environment Federation Stormwater Committee — will identify not only effective videos, but what contributes to making them effective.

Awards will be given at the discretion of the judges.

Selected videos will be shown in the Stormwater Pavilion within the WEFTEC® 2017 Exhibition from Oct. 2 – 4.
