Student Film Competition 2019/20

Student Film Competition 2019/20

NAMSS is very pleased to announce that the film competition for 2019/20 is open! In keeping with the over-arching theme of Democracy, the focus this year is ‘Your vote, your voice, your future’.


The brief is simple – a short film produced by your learners to reflect this year’s theme; the film should be no more than three minutes long.

Please ensure a ‘Learner Declaration’ form is completed by each learner involved in the production of the film which should be submitted along with your entry.

Any NAMSS member college is eligible to apply but there can be only one entry submitted per college and the entry must be produced specifically for the NAMSS competition. If a college enters who has an employee sitting on the NAMSS’ Executive Board, that member will declare a conflict of interest and will not form part of any judging panel or process.

Closing date is Friday 11th January 2019.


Vouchers will be awarded to winning categories as follows:

  • First Prize - The winning group will receive high street vouchers to the value of £1,000.
  • Second Prize - The runners-up will receive high street vouchers to the value of £750.
  • Third Prize – The group in third place will receive high street vouchers to the value of £500.

All winning entrants will also receive a commemorative plaque.

Winners will be announced at our Annual Conference Gala Dinner on Monday 11th March 2019 at the Hilton Hotel in Liverpool. All shortlisted entries will be offered one free place at our Annual Conference Gala Dinner and anyone wishing to purchase additional places can do so at cost price.

Winning films will be published on the NAMSS website as examples of best practice for other colleges to view and to inspire other learners to ‘have a go’ next year! (Please note that this is a condition of entry).
