From Helen McCarron, Careers Advisor:

Students or recent graduates (last 2 years) can enter a creative short video for a chance to win £10,000 to kickstart their business.

The varsity pitch competition is run by NACUE. The closing date for this is the 5th October 2012. There are different categories you can enter which can be found on the competition website.  All you need to do is upload a short video onto YouTube and fill in the ‘enter now‘ part of the website. The most relevant category for media graduates is ‘Creative Industries’ – for businesses which demonstrate an innovative and forward thinking business model, whilst creating a viable opportunity in the arts and design spheres.

Here are some examples of ceative industries pitches so far.
