Group category

Welcome to the Group category of the Childnet Film Competition 2020!

The Group category is open to young people aged 3-18 and you can also work with the adults around you too.

The challenge is to create a 2 minute film in response to the theme:

We want an internet where we're free to...

What does the internet allow you to do and are there any ways it could be even better?

How much freedom do you think you have online? Do you think we are free to be ourselves online and feel safe to post without criticism? It’s up to you! Simply decide what you want to say and tell us how you think we can all make it happen.

We are looking for creative, inspiring and imaginative films which reflect this year’s theme. You don't need the highest tech camera or equipment, even if you just film on a phone or tablet, we are looking for the film with the strongest messaging. The possibilities are endless!

Make sure your completed films reach us by 5pm on Monday 22nd June 2020 so that you can be in with a chance of winning some great prizes for your school or youth organisation.

Three films will be shortlisted and then judged by our prestigious judging panel. All of those groups who are shortlisted will receive some great prizes for their school or youth organisation.

Working together might be difficult at the moment but we know that young people love a challenge. Whether you are a family with a great idea or a group of friends who want to use tech to work together, we want to see your films! 

When do we find out if we have won?

Winning finalists announced - Monday 29th June
