On Monday September 20 we’ll be announcing the finalists of our ViewChange Online Film Contest. At final count the contest garnered 137 accepted entries, and films were submitted from 49 different countries! Two of the finalists from each category were determined by online voting.
The announcement will be made at a TEDxLondon event by contest judge Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. It’s part of a whole day of TEDx events, starting off with TEDxChange in New York, an event dedicated to the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Millennium Development Goals, featuring Melinda French Gates, TED curator (not to mention author and Wired editor-in-chief) Chris Anderson and TED star Hans Rosling.
The New York event will be followed by TEDxLondon, which will focus on ViewChange.
Both events will be streamed live at linktv.org/viewchange/tedxchange, starting at 3PM GMT/11AM EDT/8AM PDT. The announcement itself is expected to take place at around 6:50PM GMT.
