Box Office Bioethics – 2012-2013 competition now open

Box Office Bioethics is the Council’s film competition that aims to get young people making short films about contemporary bioethics issues.

Who is eligible to enter?

The competition is open to individuals or groups of students in the UK and Republic of Ireland. It may be of particular interest for students working towards an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). There are three student categories: Undergraduate, Years 12 & 13, and Year 11 and under.

What should the films be about?

Films can be about any bioethics topic, providing that it falls within the biological and medical sciences and the ethical dimensions of the issue are clearly presented and explored. Films should be between 3 and 5 minutes long. (You can find out more about eligibility by reading the competition rules and FAQs).


Winners in each category will receive a £200 Amazon voucher (per team), and their film will be screened at the Council’s annual public lecture (early May 2013) where winners will be presented with their vouchers and certificates.

Entry period

Entries will be accepted from September 2012 until 28 February 2013.
