If you are a student enrolled in subjects relating to Flood Risk and Coastal Management (FCRM), or a young professional who has been working in this area for no more than three years, you are invited to engage in the Flood and Coast YouTube Challenge.
Flood & Coast’s YouTube challenge invites videos illustrating any aspects of flood and coastal risk, resilience and response, primarily relating to one of the main event themes:
· Community Resilience/People and Property
· Changing Climate.
In response to the severe flood disasters throughout the country in the last couple of years, Flood & Coast Exhibition and Conference was convened by the Environment Agency and has become the UK’s largest gathering of FCRM professionals in an effort to make real progress into preventing and alleviating UK flooding and coastal erosion. The organisers have set the challenge for students and young professionals to produce a relevant, creative and interesting video to show on screen at Flood & Coast 2017, taking place in Telford from 28-30 March 2017.
There will be one winning video in each theme, and these will be shown on the event website and on screens at the event in Telford. Each winner will be invited to travel to the event for one day and capture aspects of the event on film. Travel and subsistence will be paid for by the organisers.
Entrants must script, shoot and edit their video, which should be between 1:30 and 2:30 minutes. Entries must be uploaded to YouTube, with a link sent to the event organisers
The deadline for entries is Monday 30 January 2017, and winners will be notified by Friday 17 February 2017. Full details can be found at www.floodandcoast.com or contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
