A Nepal based film maker Tsering Choden’s three minute documentary is one of the winners of the Democracy Video Challenge, a worldwide online competition, organized by the State Department. Young video makers around the world were asked to complete the phrase, “Democracy is…” through three-minute videos to be posted on the competition’s YouTube site.
According to the organizers, more than 900 people from 95 countries entered the challenge. An independent jury selected the 18 finalists, and the online voting public chose the six winners, one from each region of the world.
Tsering Choden’s documentary is a mixture of different images from Nepal with a voice over of people giving different perspectives on democracy.
The winners are getting all expense paid trips to the United States in September this year.
