MARLISCO launched a European video challenge, a contest in 14 EU countries, encouraging youngsters to tell us what they think about the problem of marine litter -- why should we care and what can be done.

Over 150 youngsters took part in the contest in the UK to make a video of a maximum of 2 minutes.

'Marine Heroes' was made with a primary school class of 30 children from Fourlanesend primary school, and were voted winners April 2014 of the UK primary school section and overall UK winners.

Produced and co-directed by Phil Shingler of Western Exposure.
