This year we have the pleasure to organize the III edition of the movie competition for school students in Poland “Antiquity – Camera – Action!”, an endeavour by the Centre for Studies on the Classical Tradition in Poland and East-Central Europe (OBTA) at the Faculty of “Artes Liberales”, University of Warsaw. The competition is a part of the “Our Mythical Childhood” project.
The main topic of this year’s competition is “Ecology” in relation to the Ancient culture of Greece and Rome.
The participants should consider how they want to present the main topic in their works and what theme to choose, e.g. the myth of Arcadia, heroes of mythology working for the protection of the environment, Cleopatra praising ecological cosmetics, etc.
We encourage you to watch the movies submitted to our competitions in the previous years: I edition – MYTH & II edition – HISTORY and the works from a similar competition taking place at the University of Cambridge.
We are looking forward to receiving the submissions for the new “Ecology” edition and we are wishing good luck to all the participants!
