Lights, Camera, Parliament…

Tell schools in your constituency about Lights, Camera, Parliament!, a competition for budding young filmmakers run by Parliament’s Education Service.


Young people aged 11-16 are invited to submit a short film about what law they would make. Past competition entries have proposed laws from banning size zero models, to tackling bullying and raising the age of army entry to 21.

Finalists are invited to present their films to a panel of judges and will be awarded prizes at a prestigious awards day in Parliament. The final date for entries is 26 March, so there is plenty of time for your schools to get involved.

Download all you need to promote this opportunity to your schools from the ‘Lights, Camera, Action!’ intranet page.

Find out more about the competition at or contact the Education Service on x4496.


Fax to Email

Added 23 January 2012

Do you want to be able to access your faxes remotely?

Fed up of junk faxes which waste your paper and ink?

There is a solution: Fax to email.

PICT are able to have your incoming faxes delivered to an email inbox, which you can access via Outlook. It won’t affect the operation of your fax machine and you can still send faxes in the normal manner. You’ll then be able to choose whether or not to print the faxes, delete them, or forward them on to someone.

If you’d like to give fax to email a try, give PICT a call on x2001.
