Scotland-Malawi Video Competition

23 Feb 2018

Are you planning your school trip to Malawi in the next few months? Are you passionate about filming and photography? Why not share your experiences with us and win exciting placements with leading media entities in Scotland?

Young people across Scotland are invited to create a video, no more than 90-seconds long, about Scotland’s friendship with Malawi.

It could be about your school partnership with Malawi, a visit you have enjoyed to Malawi, or just your take on what you think is so special about the friendship between our two countries. You can do it individually or in groups. We want to see what you think about the Scotland-Malawi relationship. What are your priorities? What story do you want to tell? This competition is part of Scotland’s Year of Young People, it’s about taking time to listen to and celebrate young people’s voice within Scotland’s international work. 

We are working with a range of media partners for the competition, each of whom have donated a very special prize for the competition: the chance for winners to come in to their studio/newsroom, learn first-hand how the Scottish media works, and make their own Scotland-Malawi news package, or write their own article. It’s an amazing opportunity, especially for those interested in the media, and one not to be missed.

To enter, simply upload your video (max 90 seconds) to YouTube and email a link to events(at) no later than 31st October 2018.

You need to make sure you have permissions from anyone featured in the film, especially if young people, and permission to use any music featured.

Do email us if you have any questions or need any support.
