First World War Film Competition

National Archives has launched a competition to get aspiring filmmakers to put its First World War files on film. Ten First World War documents reflecting different experiences of wartime have been selected from the archives and put online and entrants must use one or more as the starting point for a three-minute short film. Documents include:

• Songs from a Women’s Land Army booklet
• Siegfried Sassoon’s famous war protest letter
• Mata Hari’s security service file.

The three winning entries will be featured on the National Archives website and get cash prizes of £500, £200 and £100. The deadline for submitting entries is Wednesday 7th January 2015.
