The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has teamed up with young photographer and music video director Christian Tierney, to launch an exciting new competition for secondary schools today themed “The Story of Your Stuff”.
Students are invited to choose an everyday object such as a pen, mobile phone or a water bottle and use a visual medium to illustrate its life-cycle, where it came from, how you use it and more importantly, where it’s going to end up!
The competition is open to secondary school students up to and including 18 years. The prize is: €500 for the winning entry and €500 plus a video workshop with Christian Tierney for the school. All information about the competition can be found on www.thestoryofyourstuff.ie. Here students can view a “Story of your stuff” video created by Christian Tierney and top tips from him on how to get started.
