This half term we are challenging young geographers to produce a coastal environments video using clips from the Internet Geography archive. We’ve made available a wide range of coastal environment clips for students 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, students are welcome to record their own and include them in their videos. 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
Each school can enter one video. We recommend running a school-based competition with the best video submitted Internet Geography.
We’ve put together a promotional poster for you to customise and share with your students.
To submit your entries, you will need to make your videos available online using storage such as Google Drive or Dropbox. Then, head over to the entry form and submit a link to your video. The deadline for competition entries is 3 pm on 15th July 2020.
We’ll share our favourite videos on Internet Geography and the winning entry will receive a £30 Amazon gift voucher.
The Coast Video Competition is sponsored by Internet Geography Plus. Please consider supporting Internet Geography by taking out a subscription.
