Adobe is training 500 teachers across the country to use its video-editing software so their pupils can compete in this year's BOOM! Music Video Academy.
The teachers are being taught to use Adobe Premiere video-editing software and will then take the software back to their schools. Their students will be asked to produce a music video, using one of six tracks donated by EMI. Artists featured include The Chemical Brothers, Athlete and Doves.
Joel Potts, lead singer with Athlete, said: "We went along to the awards last year, and we were really taken aback by the quality of the videos. We saw about 20 promos in total, and the standard of the work done by some of the students was incredible. It just goes to show that you don't have to be a certain age or do a certain job to have great creative ideas."
Students are encouraged to come up with ideas over the summer holidays and complete the project by 5 November. The competition culminates in an awards dinner on 14 December.
The winners will receive high-end digital video cameras and Adobe software.
