Are you the creative type who enjoys making videos?  Then be the one to help us show the world that Secondhand shopping is not just trendy but more sensible, and an eco-friendly substitute to throwing out!  With your short film on the subject of secondhand, you take on the challenge of implementing your most imaginative marketing idea and could win CHF 2’000.-!

We have extended the deadline for submissions to August 31, 2020
and look forward to your videos!

Why Secondhand?

You haven’t worn that sweater in ages? You’ve read the book and know the ending? You don’t like your orange trousers anymore? Your PlayStation works fine though you now have other hobbies perhaps?

Before you decide to discard and buy new, there is a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly way (to find the right sweater, cool pants or exciting book), and it’s called “Secondhand”.

With the Less Is More Short Film Award we will demonstrate that the Reuse Principle makes far more sense than simply throwing away.  Extending a product’s lifecycle translates into prevented waste for more reasons than a short video could convey.

Who can participate?

Any creative individual who resides in the German-speaking regions of Switzerland, Germany or Austria can participate in the Less Is More Short Film Award. Production must have begun in 2019/2020. The competition is open to both individuals and teams.
