The Economist is looking to bring that content to life through a variety of short videos geared towards teenagers.

The Economist is looking for filmmakers who can tackle the complex subjects and issues covered within the publication in a way that appeals to 14 to 17-year-olds. Filmmakers can use animation, live feeds, graphics, documentary style and more to create content that would engage a high-school student.

Videos should be 3 to 5-minutes long and must focus on a subject covered by The Economist in one of the following areas: politics, finance, international relations or technology. Entries must be in English or have English sub-titles, and no Economist branding should be contained within the submission.
