The Can Makers, the body that represents beverage can manufacturers, has launched a competition that aims to dispel myths about what happens to drink cans once they are recycled.
Sponsored by the British Film Institute and the Can Makers, the competition asks students to enter short videos exploring the myths of drinks can recycling, particularly what happens to our recycling, which is often misunderstood. Entrants will have a chance to win £1,500 and be recognised nationally as a leading student filmmaker.
The celebrated British actor Danny Dyer leads a host of celebrities and experts from the environment, sustainability and film making industries who will be judging the entries.
Whether a budding Scorsese or Spielberg, an environmentalist with the urge to spread the word, or just a creative student who loves a challenge, this is a fantastic opportunity. Entrants will need to submit a video, no more than two minutes in length, which busts some of the popular drinks can recycling myths. Whether it’s an animation, a funny stunt or a short documentary, the winning student will be rewarded the top prize of £1,500. The winner of each of the five sub-categories will win £500.
The closing date for entries is Thursday 28th February 2013.
