Students and alumni encouraged to speak out on ‘Why English Matters’

The School of the Arts, English and Drama is asking current and former English students to shoot a short creative film of themselves responding to the statement ‘Why English Matters’.

To enter, students and alumni must create a 30-90 second video using a phone or camera in their favourite spot on the Loughborough campus.

We are keen to hear why English matters to the people who know it best, and are encouraging people to engage with traditional perspectives on the subject and bring their narrative to life.

The creator of the entry judged by the panel to be the most creative, original and best executed will win an iPad Air 2. Footage from the videos will also be used as part of a compilation video on the subject of Why English Matters.

To give an idea of the videos we are looking for, we have produced a trailer and asked a number of Loughborough alumni and staff to create their videos.

The deadline for submissions is 5pm on 26 May 2017. Full terms and conditions and a link for submitting videos are available here.

Good luck to all entrants!
