Film Competition finalists announced!
Posted on 30 June 2014
Childnet has today announced the shortlist of schools and youth groups who have made it to the final.
We've been so impressed with the high standard across all the entries this year. It really showcases young people's creativity and understanding of e-safety issues, and it was very difficult to narrow it down to just 6 finalists. We want to congratulate everyone who submitted an entry and we hope you had fun making your films - we certainly enjoyed watching them!
The 6 finalists will attend a private screening at the BFI Southbank on Monday 14th July 2014, where they will see their films shown on the big screen. The winners will then be announced by a panel of judges including Trend Micro, this year's sponsor.

The Film Competition was founded in 2010 as a way of asking young people to focus on positive use of the internet, inviting young people from across the UK to capture e-safety messages in a short film.
The project engages schools in using new technology for creative and positive uses and equips young people with the skills they need to become confident digital creators. In addition, through the process, the young people create valuable resources to educate their peers about staying safe online and develop their own understanding of what it means to be a good digital citizen.
