The challenge presented to us was to seek out and nurture new talent for BBC ALBA and encourage people to tell their own stories in Gaelic.

Our response was FilmG - the online Gaelic short film competition and training programme, from concept to final delivery, including website, marketing, project management and awards ceremony. This project was initiated in 2008 and has been so successful that it is still running!

It has also won HMI’s Sector Leading Innovative Practice award and won Best Cultural Event in the Scottish Event Awards 2012
