Childnet's Film Competition 2010 goes live

Posted on 04 May 2010

Childnet’s Film Competition 2010 is a creative challenge designed to inspire children and young people to celebrate the internet, encouraging them to develop a deeper understanding of the notion of digital citizenship and to share their ideas about staying safe online.

Running throughout May and June, applicants to the competition have been asked to create a 60 second short illustrating their message through animation, drama, dance, music or the filmed medium of their choice. Catering for the wide age range of expected applicants, the competition has distinct categories for primary and secondary audiences with full supporting details for teachers.

Childnet’s Education Manager Ellen Ferguson said,

“We are excited to challenge children and young people to think about the internet in such a positive and creative way, and early interest in the competition has proved its popularity. We are delighted with the support we have received from industry partners including the BBFC, ZU3D, MoFilm and 2Simple and are looking forward to receiving entries.”

Shortlisted finalists will be selected from each category and invited to a private screening of their films and to find out the overall winners. Supported by a range of partners and with a ‘treasure chest’ of prizes including official rating by the BBFC, the overall winners will be announced by David Cooke, Director of the BBFC, and presented with a "black card".
