Young Filmmaker Awards

The history of African and Caribbean people in Britain

New competition

The University of Chichester in conjunction with the Black Cultural Archives, the Historical Association and History Matters has launched a new national competition to encourage young people to look at history in a new light, to research with an open mind and to engage others imaginatively through film or video-making.

The History Matters Young Filmmaker Awards is an opportunity to get involved in documenting and exploring the history of African and Caribbean people in Britain.

We’re keen that this history is told from the point of view and perspective of young Britain, therefore the competition is open to all young people aged between 11-19 years who are in full-time secondary or further education. Young people who are no longer in Education, Training or Employment (NEET) may also enter.

Early bird entries have now closed but due to the excitement and interest in the competition we have extended the closing date to Friday 17th February 2017.

See the attached flyer below for more details of the competition and how to enter or visit the competition website

Good luck!
