Invitation to Tender- Northumberland International Dark Sky Park 10th Anniversary Video Commission 


On the 9th December 2023, Northumberland International Dark Sky Park will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary since it was awarded Dark Sky Status. In the last decade, this accreditation has had a significant impact for the area- bringing together communities, building new businesses, creating new experiences and proving Northumberland with one of its key areas for tourism.

The Northumberland International Dark Sky Park Steering Gorup (NIDSP) are looking to celebrate the impact of this status, telling the story of the dark sky park to date as well as our hopes for the future and conservation of the dark skies.

The Brief

- the stories of those who have seen how its success has grown over the last 10 years,

- local businesses and the impact the dark sky park has had on them

- Dark sky enthusiasts and astronomers

- local observatories and specialist attractions

- members of the communities who live within the dark sky park

- impact further afield- dark skies out if the dark sky park e.g. Northumberland Coast AONB

 We would also like to commission a series of short clips that can be used for continued social media purposes across the 12 months, to enable partners to continue the campaign.
