10. Entries must be submitted via this link.

Additional and appropriate individuals may also be engaged depending on the volume of entries. BBC Studios reserves the right to give, in its absolute discretion, second chances to entries that include minor breaches to these Terms and Conditions so that such errors can be corrected before assessment.

12. The entries will be viewed, and 3 - 5 videos will be chosen.

13. The selection shall use the following criteria:
• Storytelling. How well is the story told?
• Digital Creativity. How strong and accomplished are the design elements of the piece?

14. The chosen videos will be showcased on 29th November 2019.

For more information about how BBC Studios uses your personal data, including details of the lawful basis for processing your personal data and your privacy rights, visit www.bbc.co.uk/contributors/privacy-notice.

17. All entries must be the original work of the entrant (other than any pre-cleared materials provided specifically for such use by BBC Studios) and must not infringe the rights of any other party (including, but not limited to, the rights in any music included). BBC Studios accepts no liability if entrants ignore these rules and entrants agree to fully indemnify BBC Studios against any claims by any third party arising from any breach of these rules. If you include the image or voice of yourself or any other person in the video, you must have sought permission from that person to include them in such way and you shall grant BBC Studios the right to use their voice or image in the video in the context of this project.

18. All entries must not contain illegal, unlawful, defamatory, obscene, offensive or any other unsuitable material. All entries must be suitable to be broadcast by BBC Studios.

Other than respect to pre-cleared materials provided by BBC Studios, entrants retain the copyright in their original ideas but grant to BBC Studios a perpetual non-exclusive royalty-free licence to broadcast their entry across all media, as well as use it on any online platforms. For the avoidance of doubt, no fees or expenses will be paid for the creation of any part of the entry.

22. BBC Studios reserves the right to: (i) amend these terms and conditions and vary the project rules including but not limited to the opening and closing times; (ii) disqualify any entrant who breaches the rules, displays rude, insulting or inappropriate behaviour at any point (including prize fulfilment) or has acted fraudulently in any way and; (iii) cancel the project, at any stage, if in its opinion it is deemed necessary or if circumstances arise outside its control.

23. BBC Studios, their sub-contractors, subsidiaries and/or agencies cannot accept any responsibility whatsoever for any technical failure or malfunction or any other problem with any server, system, network or mobile operator or service provider or otherwise which may result in any registration not being properly logged or not recorded.

24. Entrants will be deemed to have accepted these rules and to agree to be bound by them when registering.
