Going to work offers a rich diversity of human experiences: from friendship to fulfilment, compassion to humour.

This is an open invitation to put together a short film so we can capture as many and as varied a selection of workplace experiences as possible and share them with everyone online.

The competition, which is being run on and YouTube, is open to anyone, regardless of their film making credentials. Entries may be no more than three minutes long and content must represent a workplace theme.

James Reed continues:

Film making experience is not a must, but a desire to share what the workplace means to you in a short film is.

Whether youre an accomplished film maker or youre simply shooting with your mobile phone, we want to capture the moment, be it funny, artistic, dramatic or thought provoking. Workplace Film Competition runs from September, 2009 until January, 2010. An expert judging panel will be revealed later this year and will be made up of leading lights from the worlds of film making, advertising and media.

James Reed comments:

The prize on offer and the quality of the judging panel shows commitment to promoting new talent in film making. We hope to make this competition an annual event.
