Could your amateur video be used to stop A&E overcrowding?
Did you get a new video camera for Christmas? Do you fancy
putting it to good use and winning yourself a prize and some
brilliant exposure for your work? The NHS is looking for amateurs
to submit a short film that could be used as part of a national
Health conscious film makers are being asked to create a short,
30 second, film aimed at 15-24 year olds that follows a very simple
brief. It has to help support the message of the NHS Choose Well
campaign which aims to ensure that people, who need advice and
treatment for common complaints, get fast and expert care. Many
minor illnesses or injuries can be treated at home with help from
local services such as pharmacies and GP surgeries. The campaign
points them towards ways of getting treatment other than going to
A&E departments or calling 999.
The winning entry will be uploaded to web sites and TV screens
located in NHS waiting rooms and surgeries and YouTube channels.
The producer of the video will also receive an iPad 2 (16GB)
donated by AV Networks Ltd, who are supporting the campaign.
Entry to the competition is simple, just create your 30 second
video and upload it as a private video to YouTube or Vimeo before
21st January 2013. Then send the link to email@example.com
(with 'video competition' in the subject) so it can be checked to
ensure it meets with NHS guidelines.
You need to upload it as a private video in the first instance
so NHS North West can check it over for legal and technical
information clarity. Once it has been checked it can be made public
so others can see it.
A winner will be announced at the end of February 2013. For a
