A Note from the Judge:

“Plastic Police” strikes a balance between relatable humor and the seriousness and urgency of the topic. The technical choices are strong throughout. Switching from black and white (the antiquated single-plastic use) to color (recycling/reusing) shows the stark contrast between personal choices. There’s sharp editing throughout, and the PSA gives good information, through both statistics and recommendations. By the end of the PSA, the viewer feels like avoiding single-use plastic is the responsible and cool thing to do.
