It could be music or soundscape based, a monologue or indeed whatever your amazing creativity can conjure up! It can be shot and edited on your phone or full professional kit if you have it. What we are looking for are the most impactful and creative ideas. Have fun but craft something you want to say. The only provisos are , it cannot contain swearing, nudity, drug use references or  incite hate towards any sector of society. Oh yes, and it must be no longer than 60 seconds.
