“What does nuclear disarmament mean to you, to the world, or to our future?”
Show us, in a film 30-120 seconds long. You could think about:
The cost: 200,000 died at Hiroshima and Nagasaki
The risk: Human error has repeatedly put us within minutes of a first strike
The scale: There are over 23,000 nuclear warheads in the world
The price: £100 billion for a Trident replacement


There will be £1000-worth of prizes awarded - the prizes in the Young Adult (19-25) age category being cash, and a mixture of cash and film-making equipment being offered in the younger age groups.

This free-of-charge event, scheduled to be held in November, will showcase the best entries on the ‘big screen’, with an opportunity for the young film-makers to introduce their work, before judge David Sproxton (co-founder of Aardman) announces the winners and presents the prizes.  A panel discussion will follow, providing a unique opportunity to ask questions of David and a panel of other distinguished film-making professionals.

NOTE: We would also urge all entrants who complete their film by 9th July  2012 to also submit their film to ‘DepictT!‘ (, for which it will also be eligible.

Please contact us at if you have any questions, or would like leaflets.
