Opportunity: Short film competition – why invest in nature?

22nd February 2019

A contest for young people aged 16-30 about why businesses should invest in nature

This is a short film contest for young people aged 16-30 about why businesses should invest in nature. At Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Scottish Forum of Natural Capital (SFNC), we want to give businesses and policymakers a better understanding of how they rely on and have an impact on nature, to make sure that Scotland’s environment can thrive. And there are some great cash prizes up for grabs!

We want your help to communicate with businesses. As a part of the legacy from the Year of Young People, we’d like to encourage young people to communicate the benefits of nature in a creative way and give them a platform for engaging with businesses. We have six different categories for you to enter, each representing six different business sectors in Scotland.


  • Food, Drink and Agriculture
  • Forestry and land management
  • Tourism
  • Energy
  • Finance
  • Built environment

The winner of each category will receive £500, and out of these six winners we’ll also announce an overall winner who in total receives £1000.

We’re pleased to work with our sponsors and also collaborate with Creative Scotland and YoungScot. The competition is open from the 18th of February to the 31st of May 2019. The winner will be announced in June 2019 with a prize ceremony afterwards.

Please see the Scottish Natural Heritage website for recommended background reading, instructions about how to enter and sponsor statements. Good luck!
