This contest is open worldwide!
In 2012, Green Day had enough creative inspiration to record three albums of new material. As they deliver that inspiration directly to their supporters on their current world tour, Green Day wants to see how their music can inspire the filmmaker in YOU, with the launch of the official 'Green Day Short Film Challenge'.
Whether you have a flip cam or cellphone video app, or are an aspiring auteur with hotshot shooting and editing skills, or perhaps the creative type with something to say, Green Day wants to see your work and what you’re capable of.
Here's the deal:
1. Choose one of the 37 songs across Green Day’s newest records ¡UNO!, ¡DOS!, and¡TRE! that gets your creative juices flowing. You can review the tracks on Spotify or download the track from iTunes.
2. Create an awesome film to accompany the song you choose. It’s not the tools you use that are important, it is how you get what’s in your head and heart onto the screen. Do you have access to multiple cameras, cranes and a special effects house? Cool, but don’t be discouraged if it’s just you, a camera phone and some video apps. Sometimes limitations aren’t limitations at all.
Green Day's Choice
One winner will have their short film featured and promoted for millions around the world via Green Day’s official website and social media channels. Additionally the winner will:

A further four finalists will each receive an ¡UNO!, ¡DOS!, and¡TRE! box signed by Green Day and will have their submissions featured on GreenDay.com.
