Northern Lights is Scotland's first ever mass participation documentary film project.
Submissions, which can be anything from a brief video fragment to an unedited stream of consciousness, can be made online (www.wearenorthernlights.com) until 21 June 2012 with the promise that the best submissions will be gathered together and edited into a unique feature length documentary.
Awards totaling £10,000 are on offer to the most compelling contributions in a range of categories, including the Best Issue-based award. Issues might include inequality, materialism, the environment, gender, disability, ethnicity or politics. Submissions may be in response to the project question "What would you like to see?"
The award will be judged by award winning journalist, commentator and journalist, Lesley Riddoch and Northern Lights Director, Nick Higgins. The judges will seek to reward the submission that presents the most powerful insight into and understanding of a particular issue relevant to Scotland.
