100 Second Film Tribute


In honor of Cousteau's century of influence, we hosted a call for short video tributes,100-seconds in length, one second for each of the years since his birth. We asked our submitters to be creative, humorous or serious, using poetic spoken word or creative animation, underwater or above. Each 100-second video had be an original piece and a genuine reflection of how Cousteau has inspired the individual. Below are the finalists and 2 winners. The winners were showcased and received their awards at the May 18 Ocean Inspiration event in New York. The finalist videos were also shown during this event. Thank you all for submitting!
