Wannabe Michael Moores and Nick Bloomfields are being asked to document the true stories behind the country’s millions of volunteers as part of the Year of the Volunteer this year.
Anyone with a camera who thinks they can cut it can enter the competition with other categories including radio stories and digital films running in conjunction with it.
National Broadcast Manager for Community Service Volunteers (CSV) Damian Radcliffe said the stories behind those who volunteer provided compelling and dramatic subjects for the medium of film.
He said: “The material is there. All we need are budding film-makers who fancy seeing their work on the big screen.”
He added aspiring film makers need not be volunteers to be eligible for the competition.
He said: “We’ve got the stories if you’ve got the skills. Contact us and we’ll put you in touch with a volunteer.”
Successful entrants will have their work shown on the big screen at the Curzon cinema in Mayfair on October 25, 12 other cinemas around the country and on national TV on the Community Channel.
As well as highlighting the real life tales of volunteers, the project is also aimed at inspiring audiences to give voluntary work a go on CSV Make a Difference Day on October 29.
