Welcome to the Primary category of the Childnet Film Competition 2019!

As the competition turns 10, this year is all about celebrating the internet. Your challenge is to create a 60 second film in response to the theme:


Our Future Online - The internet belongs to me

and this is how it’s going to be 

Childnet are challenging pupils aged 7-11 to create a 60 second film in response to this theme. We are looking for creative, imaginative films which reflect a positive and inspiring message about being safe, kind and responsible online.

Use comedy, animation, spoken word, or how about creating an advert, documentary or news report. It’s entirely up to you but make sure that you stand out and create something that can teach other young people about being kind and respectful online!

All you have to do is to get your completed film to us by Monday 10th June 2019 to be in with a chance of winning a great prize for your school or youth organisation.

Shortlisted finalists will then be invited to a private screening at London’s BFI on Tuesday 2nd July 2019, where the winners in both categories will be revealed by our guest judging panel.

Find out more about the finalist event, our judges and some of the amazing prizes you could win here.

Good luck and have fun!

All shortlisted finalists will be notified on Wednesday 19th June 2019.  

Remember - Teachers and youth leaders MUST oversee and submit entries on behalf of all participants with completed media consent forms included. 

Please ensure that you have read the competition terms and conditions in your competition pack and ticked the relevant boxes on your check list on your competition entry form.
