The competition is not only about written texts: everyone eligible to register should send a video alongside the written script. Catch an inspirational moment on screen, whether you have already gained experience in the art of film-making or are just about to start your very first short film!
The video should mainly capture what makes the ‘trace’ special. How is it connected to German, Austrian or Swiss culture?
The short film should feature German-language dialogue or voice-over and not exceed 3 minutes. The judges will be looking for creativity and language use - rather than technical ability. In other words, any learner of German can participate. You will be asked to send in a written version of the spoken words together with the film.
- students at secondary schools/ Sixth Form Colleges
- German mother tongue speakers and
- anybody else who feels up to the challenge!
