In 2019, the International Council General of the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul (SSVP) will celebrate 180 years since its foundation. To celebrate this occasion, the International Board decided to launch a competition called “THE SEVEN FOUNDERS”.
In this way, the Council General hopes to stimulate and expand understanding and research, in a fun and creative way, about the 7 founders of the SSVP : Antoine Frédéric Ozanam, Auguste Le Taillandier, Jules Devaux, Paul Lamache, François Lallier, Félix Clavé and Emmanuel Bailly. They were the precursors of what today is an organisation with a presence in more than 150 countries, and around 800,000 members.
Entrants can use film or video: short (up to 40 minutes), medium-length (41 to 69 minutes) or
feature-length (more than 70 minutes).
Winners will receive:
First prize: € 2,000.00 (two thousand euros)
Second prize: € 1,500.00 (one thousand five hundred euros)
Third prize: € 1,000.00 (one thousand euros)
Deadline to submit work: 30 April 2019.
Results will be published on The International Council General’s various media platforms on 09 September 2019.
