This summer the Childnet Film Competition invited schools and youth organisations from across the UK to capture their internet safety messages in a short film, looking at the theme of ‘Connect with respect’.
The competition, run as part of Childnet’s work in the UK Safer Internet Centre, saw the highest ever number of entries in 2018 with a total of 223 films submitted and a spectacular 1,000+ young people taking part.
The competition is a firm favourite in the Childnet calendar and we always enjoy watching each and every film that gets sent in.
The tricky thing is making the difficult decision of picking the top three films in each category. To help us with this process we stick to a firm list of points which all films must adhere to.
Introducing the best of the rest:
However, this year we wanted to do something a bit different and create a platform for the fantastic films that made it onto our shortlist, but narrowly missed out on the top three places.
So, for the first time in the history of the competition we will be showcasing these films up until the 10th year anniversary launch of the 2019 Childnet Film Competition in February.
The 10 films that will be seen over the coming months are a fantastic testament to the positive ethos of the competition and are effective educational resources in their own right.
We hope you enjoy these films as much as we did!
First up we have:
Alderham Richard Hallam – Internet Cleaners
Bredon School - Connect with Respect
Smithan Primary – Terms and Conditions
Trentham Academy - Connect with Respect
