Throughout the Northern Lights submission period we will be organising workshops around the country to help you create your submissions. But did you know that you can host your own?

If you have been thinking about submitting a video but need that extra push, or if you’re dying to get your friends involved, we want to help you get started.

Are you part of a group, party, or organisation? How about a book club, a walking group, or a stitch-and-bitch? We want you to introduce them to us! Get together and show us your experience of the best small country in the world.

You may already be familiar with the 3 questions we hope will get you started. Why not brainstorm them? Many minds are better than one, and you might be surprised what you learn about Scotland once you set your mind to it. And remember, any submissions made by a workshop group is eligible for the £1000 Best Workshop Award.

It’s all about getting together and making something. So are you up for it? We can support you! Get in touch – email us at – and we’ll provide you with all the information and support that you need.
