Childnet Film Competition 2017

childnet_filmOpen to all UK schools and youth organisations, our annual competition invites all young people aged 7-18 to take on the challenge of creating a short film about internet safety. All films must showcase positive and inspiring use of the internet and clearly reflect our chosen theme.

Our judging panel will be looking out for films which are the most creative, inspiring and have a clear message. The three selected finalists from both the primary and secondary age category will be invited to a private screening at London’s BFI where they will be presented great prizes for their school or youth organisation to award their creative achievements!
