THE countdown is on for Gladstone Regional Council's EcoFest event on Sunday, where local filmmakers are raising their voices in the annual Green Scenes short film competition.

Conducted by volunteer-run Gladstone Arts Council Inc., which is an affiliate of Artslink Queensland, Green Scenes helps to celebrate World Environment Day.

Filmmakers of all ages and levels of experience have been invited to create a 30 second high impact film reflecting the World Environment Day 2014 theme of "Raise Your Voice, Not the Sea Level".

Individuals and groups will be in the running for prizes awarded in two categories.

The Ultimate Film Award offers a 16GB iPad Mini while the Supreme Filmmakers Award provides an amazing professional development session with a local film production artist Amanda McRae.

"Providing professional development opportunities to local artists is something that the Arts Council loves to do and I think offering this as a prize is a fabulous and unique concept," sais Gladstone Arts Council treasurer Maddie Cook.

All films will be exclusively shown at EcoFest on Sunday in the Tondoon Botanic Gardens Visitors Centre Gallery.

Winners will be announced in the Elders Greenhouse Tent at 1pm on the day.

For further information phone Gladstone Arts Council Inc. treasurer Maddie Cook on 4976 6766.
