Veterans For Peace is asking artists to write songs and create music videos around the theme of “Climate Crisis and The War Machine.”
The “Climate Crisis and The War Machine Music Video Contest” is about making the links that break the chains of big oil. We live in a visual world. We are asking you to create visuals that speak truth to power. We, the people opposed to patriarchal hegemony and colonizer ideology, are the stewards of this planet, and we must act to protect it. The US military is the largest consumer of fossil fuels and the largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions. It’s time to challenge the status quo and free people from the illusion that war keeps us safe.
These videos will be featured not only as a part of the Veterans For Peace National Convention, but on our social media, website, and our Gamers For Peace Twitch Channel. We will choose a first prize and runner up in each of the following five categories: Hip-hop, Pop, Country/R&B, Folk/Spoken Word, and Rock. The music video can take many forms, anywhere from a live performance recorded on your phone, to a fully produced, multi-camera music video. All levels of experience are welcome! First prizes get $1000 each and runners up get $500 each. In addition, each of the 10 winners chosen will perform at a concert for The Veterans For Peace National Convention on Aug 14, 2021.
