Film Competition 2020

Welcome to the Childnet Film Competition 2020!

The Childnet Film Competition is open to all UK schools and youth organisations and invites young people aged 7-18 to take on the challenge of creating a short film in response to this year’s theme. 

This year's theme:

We want an internet where we’re free to…

Once again we’re on the look-out for films with a clear message about positive use of the internet. We are looking for films that tell us why you want an internet that allow people to feel free and safe online and how we can make this happen.   

By taking part, learners not only create content to educate their peers but the three selected finalists from both the primary and secondary age category will be invited to a private screening at London’s British Film Institute where they will be presented with great prizes for their school or youth organisation by our prestigious judging panel.

  3. Allow time for young people to plan and create their films. 
  4. Submit your film and all consent forms by 3rd June.
