Lights, Camera, Parliament!

This national film competition asks students and teachers to explore lawmaking and its impact on all our lives.

Lights, Camera, Parliament!

If you could make one law what would it be?

For the Lights, Camera, Parliament! 2014 competition we asked young people aged 7-16 to submit a film, or a script, or a storyboard telling Parliament about a new law they would introduce in the UK.

There were lots of great entries to this year's competition and some inspiring ideas for new laws.

The Lights, Camera, Parliament! 2014 winners are:

Primary Film: A New Child Labour Law

Secondary Film: A Rubbish Law

Primary Script: 20 Mile per Hour Speed Limit within 100 Metres of all Schools

Secondary Script: Smoking Should be Banned in all Public Areas

Primary Storyboard: Inspections for School Meals

Secondary Storyboard: Women's Sportts Should be Given Equal Coverage

Check out all this year's results.

This year's winners experienced an exciting awards day at the Palace of Westminster where they received a tour of Parliament and met with the Lord Speaker and Members of the House of Lords to discuss their proposed laws and the day finished off in style with a showcasing event at the British Film Institute. The winners' schools were also awarded a camera to support their future film making projects.

You can also find lots of downloadable teacher and students resources, tips, inspiration pieces and blogs on the competition website which are a great way to engage young people creatively with Parliament, democracy and political literacy, and encourage them to get their voice heard all year round.
