Bannockburn Film Competition


As part of the programme of events to mark the 700th anniversary of the Battle of Bannockburn, the National Trust for Scotland (NTS) are launching the Battle of Bannockburn Short Film Competition to encourage school pupils to create new works which interpret Bannockburn from their own perspective.

For centuries the events that took place at Bannockburn on the 23rd and 24th of June 1314 have inspired and influenced people. Through art, song and the written word pieces have been created to commemorate those fateful days.

Entries can be made using live action, any form of animation or anything else pupils can imagine and create. Entries do not need to portray events during the battle, they can be set in any place or time. The only limitation is length, films can be no longer than five minutes (including any credits).

Films must be created by the pupils themselves. The prize for the winning entry will include film making equipment and inclusion as an online resource on the Battle of Bannockburn website. The winning entry will be chosen by a judging panel, which will include a public online vote.

Terms and conditions, pupil permissions and entry forms are all available here
