Put your Teddington road on the big screen
Do you live in Hampton? Do you want to make a video about the road you live in?
Residents are being encouraged to let their local road, town or community do the talking by putting together short films inspired by where they live.
It's part of a competition for the Twickenham Alive Film Festival early next year.
The festival is organised by World InfoZone, a local group dedicated to bringing an international perspective to education, and funded by the Council's Civic Pride Fund.
It will see the short films being judged by a panel of film industry experts with the winning entries being screened throughout the month of April.
The aim of the festival is to showcase the skills of local people and involve communities in working together to promote the borough, its history and our heritage both as a whole and on the local area.
Councillor Pamela Fleming, Cabinet Member for Community, Business and Culture, said "This competition gives people a chance to really showcase what makes Richmond upon Thames an amazing place to live and work, be it Hampton or Ham, Twickenham or Teddington; each area has its own story."
The competition has been running since September 2012 and will close in March 2013.
