September 30th, 2012 by  


The $250,000 Energy Visions Prize (EVP) competition is a contest that rewards “innovative software and video makers who advance clean energy solutions.”

There has been growing national interest in the competition, so the prize sponsor, the American Clean Skies Foundation (ACSF), recently announced that the submission deadline has been extended until December 14, 2012.

Here’s are the details on what entry consists of:

“Eligible entries of film, videos, and mobile or web-based apps must show how to:
1. End America’s unsustainable dependence on oil from foreign sources
2. Generate and distribute cleaner electricity; or
3. Bridge political and geographic divides on energy policy”

Members from the clean tech industry, film festival leaders, and commercial agencies, among others, are encouraged to participate by nominating potential entrants for up to $40,000 in prize money per work.
