Agon Armonias 2017
Call for an international competition to promote ancient Greek language!
This year, your task is to produce a short movie clip (max. 10 min) showing a short drama scene to promote the Ancient Greek language.
Your clip should be able to enthuse young and old people to learn Ancient Greek and show us, why you like to learn the Ancient Greek language. If you wish, you can include music. You can produce your clip in English, German or Greek in groups of 2-3 people. At least one of your group needs to learn the Ancient Greek language and your clip must include a short dialogue in Ancient Greek.
The best videos will be awarded:
