What do you treasure? Add your voice

This year, at the National Launch of Heritage Open Days 2016, we would like to feature you talking about your personal treasures on camera.

Your treasure might be an object, or a place that is special to you. It might be a person, a community or even a skill.

To take part, please send us a video clip of yourself with your chosen treasure, answering the following questions:

  • What is your name and where are you from?. 
  • What is the thing you most treasure and why?

No previous camera experience? It doesn't matter- all you need is access to a smart phone- we will help you with the rest.

Handy tips

  • Find a quiet place without too much background noise
  • Wear plain clothing - avoid stripes/checks/logos 
  • Make sure your head is in the frame and you are talking directly to the camera. It may be easier to ask a friend to film you or to stabilise your mobile on a table or a tripod
  • Include the question in your answer ‘ My name is….. and I am from…..’ and ‘The thing I most treasure is….’
  • Please include your treasure in the video- this could be a picture of your local community, an object that represents what your treasure is, or you could film yourself in front of it
