What Scotland Means to Me

2018 is the Year of Young People and to mark this event we have teamed up with the National Libraries of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive to hold a nationwide film making competition called What Scotland Means to Me, the competition is open to young people aged 19 years and under who are Scottish or resident in Scotland. Entrants will be asked to make a 1 minute film about what Scotland means to them. Winning entires will have a home in the National Film Archive and be a part of Scotland’s story. Awards will be handed out at a special event at the Moving Image Archive on November 28th 2018.

Any films which make it to the final stages of the competition will need to have completed paperwork. Please read the guidelines carefully and download the paperwork below. We can help you fill this in if required. If you have any queries, please contact us at info@syff.scot




Watch the film to find out more. You can’t use music in your film unless you have copyright clearance, so to get round this we’ve selected six tracks which we have copyright on.

Please download and use these tracks in your film if any of them fit.
