According to the two firms, WhatOnEarthIsGoingOn will launch a series of quarterly competitions on Filmaka, which will award filmmakers with prizes for creating flims on "positive social change." The films will be showcased on WhatOnEarth's channel on MSN, and fifteen finalists will be awarded $1,500. The top film will get $10,000 each to make a short film.
