Current TV and the Alliance for Climate Protection have teamed up to promote :60 Seconds to Save the Earth, a contest soliciting video public service announcements about climate change. They’re looking for 15-, 30-, or 60-second video spots that will showcase green action and spur public change.

60 Seconds to Save the Earth

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

A panel of celebrity judges (including Cameron Diaz, Orlando Bloom, Rihanna, and George Clooney) will whittle the entries down to 20 semifinalists, and the cream of the crop will then be determined by Current’s online community. The best ones will be aired internationally on Current TV and on MySpace’s Impact channel, and the top 20 submissions will bring home some cool loot: T-Mobile Sidekicks, a Sony entertainment system, or, for the grand-prize winner, a Toyota Highlander hybrid. The deadline for entries is September 12, so get that camera rolling.
