Make a video less than 5 minutes long, in groups of three children, upload it to theprimarychannel and you could win a Cannon FS200 Video Camera for your school and each child from the winning team gets a Fujifilm A170 Digital still and video Camera of their very own!

Hear the difference - Have you done a piece of audio work in the last school year that you are proud of?

We want radio programmes, TV programmes, podcast or audio, where pupils demonstrate their sound skills. The content of the work is up to you, this prize is judged on technique rather than content.
