High Schools from across the country have registered their interest and are now busy making their short films before the deadline of 26TH JUNE 2015.The promo for the competition can be viewed on youtube here:
The groups entering films include: school film clubs, Media Studies and Modern Studies groups, John Muir Award groups, Leadership groups and Faculties from Art and Design and the Humanities.
If you teach pupils between the ages of 14-17 it is NOT too late to enter. The pupils are invited to make a short film (5-7 mins) based on any rural topic. It could be for example about traditional land use, countryside recreation (a hobby), conservation and the environment (wildlife) or renewable energy. It is up to you, the film could have a political message behind it or equally, it could be about mountain biking in the local forest! There are some fantastic prizes on offer, including for the winning team, a work placement opportunity with the BBC. All films should be entered in dvd format to our address: King James VI Business Park, Friarton Road, Perth PH2 6DG. Good luck!
