Posted by bjl11 at Nov 11, 2014 12:45 PM |
The Department of Sociology are looking for three enthusiastic students to film and star in our 'A Day in the Life' promotional video.

The competition is open to all sociology students, including all joint honours.

Here’s what you need to do to become one of the three lucky winners…

  • Send us a one minute video clip (or a selection of clips adding up to one minute maximum) of your life as a Leicester Sociology student
  •  Be fun, creative and imaginative – don’t worry if you don’t have video/media experience

 The only requirement is that you must appear and talk at least once during the footage.

Three Simple Rules:

  1. Please ask permission before filming other people
  2. No inappropriate content!
  3. Be creative 

Brief and More Information


We want you to send us clips of your day as a sociology student here at Leicester. These might comprise footage from around campus, lectures, home, the pub etc.


Use your smart phone, iPod, tablet, etc. to record your entries. It can be one clip that is one minute long or a number of short clips adding up to a minute maximum. Don’t worry if you are not a video whizz, we will be judging you on your content and are not expecting perfect, professional footage.


The Sociology Department need three people to film and star in our new A Day in the Life promotional video. The video is planned for use on the Department’s website in a section concerned with promoting our programmes to prospective students. This is a great opportunity for you to enhance your CV with vital experience and demonstrated transferable skills. Your involvement in the project will not only allow you to demonstrate strong communication skills, but will also show that you are reliable and capable of maintaining a professional relationship with staff members. You will gain hands-on experience and have fun in the process.

More Information

We will pick three competition winners who will then go on to film more footage of their life as a Leicester sociology student. This footage will then be edited together into one video by the College of Social Science video production intern. The video will be used as a promotional tool on the sociology website. Winners will attend a short video production workshop which will provide guidance and preparation for second round of footage and, ultimately, the finished product. Once the three winners have gathered and submitted all of the final footage they will receive their £100 Amazon voucher and a high five!

Winners will not receive vouchers until they have followed through with the entire project.

Please email your entries along with your name, degree and year to Beth Lloyd- External Relations Coordinator Intern for the Department of Sociology.

The Deadline is: Friday 28 November 2014
