To give you some idea of what we are looking for, the above film is a sample entry from a youth group in the North East.

The ‘Round My Corner’ competition focuses on family, friends and local neighbourhoods and can be filmed on anything from a professional video camera to a smartphone. It can be a beautifully edited masterpiece or a simply produced good story, the choice is yours.

You need to be aged 14-19 and produce a film no longer than three minutes in length based on what ‘Round My Corner’ means to you. But you only have until Friday, October 11.
