Wildlife news reporters wanted this summer holiday

30 July 2010

Don’t be bored in the school summer holidays. Get your video camera and journalistic skills ready and become a wildlife news reporter.

Organised by the Natural History Museum in partnership with Defra (Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs), the Young Darwin Prize is looking for environmental correspondents of the future.

You can report on any aspect of the environment, whether its the species you can find in your local park or a conservation scheme to protect habitats.

Upload your 2-minute film on the www.youngdarwinprize.org website and enter the competition. There are lots of tips to get you started and the closing date is 31 August.

Charles Darwin

The Young Darwin Prize is inspired by Charles Darwin, who not only was a brilliant researcher, but was a great communicator, transforming the way we understand the natural world.

It's your turn to communicate in the 2010 International Year of Biodiversity.


The Young Darwin Prize is looking for the most engaging, informative and fun videos from young people in England.

The winners of the two age categories, 7-11 and 11-14 years, will get £500 to visit a natural environment site of their choice and a behind-the-scenes tour at the Natural History Museum. Winners will be announced at a VIP event at the Museum in October 2010.
