Retell the Nativity in a creative way. Hmm. Could be dangerous…

I have just received this….

Dear Head of Department,

Do you want to encourage creativity amongst your students?

If so, the Nativity Factor offers a great way to encourage budding film-makers to express themselves.

It is a new short film competition from ITN Productions and the Sainsbury Trust, the goal of which is to re-tell the story of the Nativity in the most creative way possible, with the winning person or team taking home a prize of up to £5,000 (£5,000 for over-16’s, and £1,000 for under-16’s). If you think your students would be interested in participating (or if you would like to participate as a school/class project), we have created a poster (click here to download) that you can put up on a noticeboard or in a hallway in your school/college. If you would like to find out more about the competition, as well as to read our terms and conditions, please visit our official site at

I am also personally very happy to answer any questions you might have about the competition, so please feel free to contact me by email at if you do have any questions.

Best regards,

Randall Helms

Communities Manager

So – retell the story of the nativity in a creative way…. bear in mind it is for ITN productions, who do both the ITV and Ch4 news, so you may be able to get away with a certain level of bad taste…
