BBC placement awaits young film crews in countryside challenge

Secondary schools in Moray are being urged to encourage entry into a project that could lead to pupils gaining a placement at the BBC.

Countryside Learning Scotland are behind a national competition that is encouraging young people aged between 14 and 17 to produce a short film depicting an environmental theme.

Pupils would be invited to produce a movie of between three and five minutes length that might feature subjects such as traditional land use, countryside recreation, conservation and the environment, wildlife or renewable energy.

A spokeswoman for Countryside Learning Scotland said; “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.”

Schools throughout the country are being encouraged to register an interest – High Schools should already have received a poster and access details on a short film (below) explaining the process.
