The Coast

Video Competition – Information for students

This half term we are challenging young geographers to produce a coastal environments video using clips from the Internet Geography archive. We’re inviting schools to enter three videos to the Internet Geography competition. 

We’ve made a range of coastal environment clips available for you to create a short video to support young people studying coasts. 

Entries can be educational videos to help students who have not studied coasts before or, can be revision clips to help with exam preparation. 

As well as using our video clips, you are welcome to record your own and include them in your video. Entries can consist of narration, text and music (copyright-free) along with the video. 

Possible themes for videos could include (but are not limited to): 

  • coastal processes
  • coastal landforms of erosion
  • coastal landforms of deposition 
  • coastal management 
  • case studies 

Take a look at the coastal environments topic on Internet Geography if you need some inspiration.

Your school is taking part in this competition and will enter three videos into the Internet Geography competition. 

Your geography department will let you know how to submit videos and the deadline for this. The deadline for schools to submit videos is 15th July 2020. 

We’ll share our favourite videos on Internet Geography and the winning entry will receive a £30 Amazon gift voucher.  

Please read the terms and conditions at the bottom of the page before you get started.
