Welcome to the Secondary 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 2 minute film in response to the theme:


Our Future Online - What's your vision for a better internet?

Tell us what can we all do to make our future online a great and safe place

Childnet are challenging pupils aged 11-18 to create a 2 minute film in response to this theme. We are looking for creative, imaginative films which reflect a positive and inspiring message.

Something other young people your age would want to watch and could learn key messages from. Use comedy, animation, spoken word, or how about creating an advert, campaign or documentary. It’s entirely up to you!

All you have to do is make sure that your completed film reaches 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, 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.
