‘Why invest in nature?’ Short Film Competition launches for 2019

18th February 2019

Why invest in nature video competition - FB general - February 2019
The Scottish Forum on Natural Capital and Scottish Natural Heritage have joined forces with business, education and the arts industry to offer young people the opportunity to share work inspired by Scotland’s nature.
 
The short film competition is seeking entries that combine passion and creative talent with the latest facts to make a powerful case for why businesses should invest in nature. We want films that reinforce the message that as well as gaining customer loyalty and goodwill by being environmentally-conscious, businesses are also dependent on a healthy natural world, often relying on nature to provide goods and services.
 
Entries should also show that investing in Scotland’s natural assets will benefit the whole of society by improving public health and well-being, with businesses being an important source of innovative ideas to help us all live more sustainably.
 
Films can use animation, imagery featuring Scotland’s natural capital, interviews or any other video material, and will be judged on how well they make the case for businesses to invest in nature, as well as creativity, innovation and attention to detail. 
 
A cash prize of £1,000 is on offer for the overall winner, with prizes of £500 for each of the top entries in the competition’s following six categories:
 
  • Food, drink and agriculture
  • Forestry and land management
  • Tourism
  • Energy
  • Finance
  • Built environment
