The two organisation have put up £4,000 in prize money split between the four best films which demonstrate ideas on how to prevent flooding and address the question of whether it is best to spend money on prevention or cure.
Entrants are asked to put forward their fantasy flood-alleviation ideas – and not be constrained by restrictions such as current planning law and land ownership issues.
The judges are looking for ideas which improve resilience to flooding, enhance ecosystems, address the impact of climate change, create jobs, mitigate flood risk and water pollution, reduce demand on the mains water supply, improve connections between land and water, provoke debate and think about good practice
The winning filmmaker will receive £2,000 with a second prize of £1,000 and two runners up receiving £500 each. The top eight submissions picked by the judging panel, will be shown at the Landscape Institute’s Building Centre exhibition that runs in January 2015 at NLA (New London Architecture).
