Ready for your THE close-up?

March 25, 2010

Students are being offered the chance to showcase their work to more than 1,000 movers and shakers at the sector's biggest awards ceremony.

As part of our #loveHE campaign, Times Higher Education is inviting students to make a film about why higher education is great.

Entries will be uploaded on to the THE's #loveHE YouTube channel, and the winning video will be shown at the THE Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London this autumn. The winning team will receive two free tickets to the event.

THE editor Ann Mroz said: "Our #loveHE campaign is about championing higher education at a time when it is not as high on the list of public priorities as we think it should be. What better way than to get today's talented students involved?"

Wes Streeting, president of the National Union of Students, said: "The notion that student days are the best days of your life may be a cliche, but it's often true. This competition will give students themselves the opportunity to explain why."

Films should be no more than five minutes long and should be delivered in a format accepted by YouTube, details of which can be found at

Academics are encouraged to get their students involved.
