School film competition: Bank, Camera, Action

Bank, Camera, Action is our annual film competition for UK school students.

Competition winners announced 

Thank you to everyone who took part in our 2019 film competition. Congratulations to our worthy winners.

Our topic was ‘Climate change – never too small to make a big difference’. At the Bank of England, we’re concerned about climate change. Many economic activities impact the environment, such as burning coal, oil and gas. And a threat to the environment is also a threat to the economy.

You sent us a wonderful range of creative films that included everything from news articles and interviews to cartoons and dance!

This year’s competition – ‘The Changing Workplace: same spaces, new realities’ launches on 6 October. More details coming soon.
