Nature In Our Neighbourhood Into Film Competition

25th May 2020

Nature in your Neighbourhood Competition

Closing date 19th June 

This competition asks you to make a short film to capture the nature in your surroundings.

You can follow the above link for more details including how to apply.

They are asking children to: create a short film and use nature and their surroundings in an engaging and creative way. To capture the calmness and document something they've noticed or appreciated while spending more time in their local area. Whether it's in the garden, the local park, or even from inside the home, the natural world is all around us.

Children are asked to get creative and use their natural surroundings to make a short film, 3 mins or under in length (including titles and credits) using what equipment you have in the home. Films can be made on a mobile phone, tablet or camera, and we have a range of film making resources to help support you.

Submit your film and be in with a chance of winning some amazing prizes. The makers of the winning film will receive a home film making bundle worth £300, and two runners up will get their hands on a year's subscription to Netflix. The closing date for entries is Friday 19 June 2020.

Nature in Your Neighbourhood is open to all young people aged 5-19 across the UK and we will be announcing the winner on our website and social media channels after the closing date. Check the full competition details on the website to see who can enter and more about what we're looking for.
