Vote for the new face of BP

A couple of months back, we asked you to Rebrand BP by designing a logo that better suits their dirty business (‘Beyond Petroleum’? Or up to their necks in tar sands and deepwater drilling?)

To be honest, your response took us by surprise - not just in quantity (we’ve had well over 2000 entries), but in quality too. Orginally we were planning to ask a panel of designers to judge the entries, but because the response was so amazing we would also like you to pick a winner.

Exhibition: Come and see the Heathrow Contest entries »

Ever since we bought our piece of land on the site of the proposed third runway at Heathrow, we've been receiving suggestions for what to do with it. We've already sunk our roots into it by establishing an allotment and planting an orchard, but now we want to go one step further and for that we want to get your ideas. Watch the video above for more details, and read on for the full lowdown on how to enter the competition.

The winning entry: My Paper Boat by Arun Bose

Remember '1 minute to save the world' - the international competition to make your own one minute film about the effects of climate change? The idea behind the project was to provide a platform to allow people to share their visions of how climate change impacts their lives - and how it will impact the future of life on this planet.

1 minute to save the world?

Lights, camera, action! Fancy making a film? 

Got a story to tell about climate change? About what's happening your area, perhaps - how you're neigbourhood is being impacted and how you're adapting, or what you think needs to be done? Can you tell that story in one minute?

1 Minute to Save the World is an international short film competition, and it's open to anyone who has something to say about climate change.

So send in your points of view, ideas or solutions. Films can be made in any format – video, animation or even on a mobile phone. Amateurs, professionals and under 18s from all over the world are encouraged to send in entries, and your films will be shown on the 1 Minute To Save The World website and also on Guardian Unlimited.  Greenpeace,  UNICEF, World Development Movement , New Economics Foundation and Stop Climate Chaos are all supporting the project. 

Everything's lovely in the Glastonbury garden

Visitors to the Greenpeace field at Glastonbury festival sitting in a hammock

I still have to get hold of some wellies (my trusty pair is elsewhere right now) and a tent, but things are starting to fall into place for Glastonbury. The team working hard to bring the Greenpeace field to life are not far from my desk and I haven't heard any raised voices yet which has to be a good sign. But for those out there with tickets (if you don't have them yet, you can still win a pair with our Greener Glastonbury Giveaway on Facebook), exactly what is being cooked up?

A big thanks once again to all of you who took part in our Glastonbury competition. Here are some of the best entries in the video section - it's a shame there could only be one winner in each category.
