Live in Barkingside or visit Barkingside?
Got a mobile phone with a camera, or some other way to make a video?
Want a chance to win £100?
Enter the Barkingside Short Film Competition!
Yes you. Definitely you. Yes, even if you haven't made a film before.
Make a 2 minute video, film or animation on the theme of ‘Love Barkingside’. Post the film to a video-sharing website and complete our submission form by 30th September 2015. A panel of judges will pick the winner and there will be prize-giving later in the autumn. £100 for the winning film and for two runners up, £50 each.
This is a fun thing for individuals, friends, or family members - anybody of any age is free to enter the competition, either solo or in a pair or group.
You don't need to be an experienced film-maker - it's spirit more than polish we're after. If you're in any doubt this could be for you, see this Ilford Recorder piece on the competition.
Spread the word - please download, print and/or display this poster [pdf format].
For full details including how to enter, see the Questions & Answers page.
And by way of example, this isn't strictly speaking Barkingside but you may recognise lovely Ilford (ht Anamik):
