My Fantastic Place celebrates our connections with nature in lots of different creative ways. It is a project with Imprint and Great Ormond Street Hospital Arts and we’re inviting everyone to take part.

How do I create something for MFP?

There are lots of ways that you can make something original and creative.

A. Think about your favourite place in nature
…this could be somewhere in your garden, a place you’ve visited, or a magical place in your imagination…

B. Ask yourself, “What’s special about My Fantastic Place?”

You can make something on your own or with others. Take a look at Inspiration and Ideas as they might help to spark your imagination.

How do I share My Fantastic Place?

Once you’ve made your My Fantastic Place Creation, you need to send it to us as images, film, sound, or a combination of all three!

Images: Take some photos of your Creation, put them in order or in a gallery and save them as image files. If you can, make sure they are either JPGs or PNG images.

Sound: If you’re making a film, think about what sounds should be part of that film. But you may also be thinking about making a creation using only sounds, or perhaps sounds that should be listened to while looking at pictures of your Creation. You could send us an MP3 with these sounds. Make sure the sound has been made or recorded by you and not someone else’s.

Film: Your Creation could be a film, or it could be a video recording of your Creation. The film could be you reciting a poem, or dancing, or performing something else. It could also be something you have animated, or something you’ve edited together from other footage. Just like any sounds you create, make sure your film has been made by you and it’s not using someone else’s film.

Decide what you’ll like to call your My Fantastic Place Creation.

Choose one of the three amazing maps to give your Creation its place.

Once you’ve plotted your spot on the map, you’ll be taken through the process of telling us some more about your Creation. When you’ve completed that, the WeTransfer page will pop up and it’s time for you to upload the media you would like to share on the map.
