Give us your unique perspective on water and be in with a chance to win one of five Fujifilm cameras and a masterclass with BAFTA-nominated Director Shekhar Kapur.

To mark World Water Day we’re asking you to make a one-minute film about what H2O means to you.

We’d like to see original takes on this theme—it could be through the lens of thirst or floods, a drama set in a car wash, or a portrait of the man who waters plants in your local park.

This is about your imagination and storytelling skills, not resources. You can make it on your own or with friends or a crew, using your phone, a top-end camera or anything in between. We just want to see your best, creative, quirky or simply beautiful short film… all about water.

“Most of us take water for granted,” said Actor Hugh Bonneville, who is delighted to be on the judging panel. “Yet one in 10 people around the world have no choice but to drink water from unsafe sources. 1,400 children die every day from diseases caused by dirty water and inadequate sanitation—that’s a shocking statistic. WaterAid’s work is essential if we are to tackle this global problem.”

Deadline: 20 February 2015

Shortlisted films will be showcased online in February as a global collection of water stories. The five winners will be announced on World Water Day, 22 March 2015.
