Competition: Win a day at MTV by rapping on climate change

Can you imagine Jay-Z or Snoop Dog crashing the UN climate talks?

We can’t either, although a rendition of Encore could be just the medicine to wake negotiators from their policy-induced haze.

But there’s a great chance YOU could make it to COP18 in Doha – or head to London and New York if you take part in a competition set up by RTCC’s new partners Connect4Climate.

The 2012 Voices4Climate competition is looking for young people around the world to shoot, snap, report or rap their stories of how climate change is affecting local communities.

The winning entries will be featured at the UN COP18 climate conference in Doha, Qatar in December.

Winners of the music video category will also be invited to spend the day with MTV editors in New York or London and have their video featured on MTV’s Voices Platform.

Seriously. Apart from this weekend’s Euromillions Lottery, we cannot think of a better prize on offer.

So get involved, get writing, filming and singing. TODAY! For more information visit the Connect4Climate website.
