Rain Bird Announces Winners of Intelligent Use of Water Film Competition


Rain Bird, a manufacturer and provider of irrigation products and services, has announced the winners of the 2007 Intelligent Use of Water TM Film Competition (http://www.iuowfilm.com), an environmentally focused film competition focused on developing a greater awareness of the need for intelligent water use.

Following an Oct. 14 screening of the six finalists' films at the Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanic Garden, filmmakers Sergio Cannella and Shalini Kantayya were presented with the Judges Award and the Audience Award respectively for their film entries titled "Carpa Diem" and "A Drop of Life."

"All six finalists in the competition presented outstanding films that will undoubtedly encourage discussion on ways to manage and efficiently utilize the Earth's most precious resource," said Dave Johnson, Rain Bird's corporate marketing director. "In light of the great impact that scarcity and mismanagement of water will have on the whole world, providing forums such as the Intelligent Use of Water Film Competition enables filmmakers like Sergio and Shalini to actively exercise their influence and raise awareness of these important issues."
