My World in 60 Seconds


My World in 60 Seconds

This is an opportunity for student films to be shown on the BBC's BIG SCREENS in cities around the country.

For full details go to the GA WEBSITE, or read on....

Important update: Relaxation on format for submissions

When we launched the competition last year, a number of e-mails were received which queried the limited format for submissions for the My World in 60 Seconds project.

Following further discussions with the BBC, we have been able to widen the format for the submission of completed films, which we think will make it a lot easier for schools to submit their work and take part in the project. The emphasis still needs to be on the HIGHEST POSSIBLE QUALITY OF VIDEO FILE.

New formats that are now available are: a HIGH QUALITY DVD or HIGH QUALITY QUICKTIME FILE.

A reminder of some of the basic rules follows. All entered films must meet these guidelines, and:

Be made by students aged 11, 12, 13 or 14

Be no longer than 60 seconds including titles and credits
Only contain music if you have composed and played it yourself
Have permissions from all people that feature in the film
Be friendly and not contain any rude or obscene material
Arrive as a high quality DVD, QuickTime file or a MiniDV tape along with an entry form no later than 1 May 2009
Be posted to My World Films, Geographical Association, 160 Solly Street, Sheffield, S1 4BF
