Do you have an idea for a documentary about the developing world? Is there a story from another country that you really want to tell?

One World Media will be running a live pitching competition for student and recent graduate filmmakers. The winner will receive £2,000, plus mentoring and support, to help them make a high-quality taster tape for their film. The money can be used for overseas travel and other costs, and if you’re a current student, this could become your final film.

The five shorlisted filmmakers will present their pitch in this event.
