PRIZES YOU COULD WIN!

Best Production

Seeing your finished film is a rewarding feeling but the work that goes on behind the scenes can sometimes be overlooked. No longer! The winner of this award will be the film that demonstrates the most innovative use of resources in the production of the film. Close attention will be given to specific areas such as: Lighting, Locations, Make-up, Costume, Set Dressing and Props.

Prize: £300 towards equipment or training

Entry Requirements:

  • Open to all high schools, youth groups, and individuals aged “up to 12”.
  • Must be directed by the children; adults must only facilitate the filmmaking process.

Best Film

This award will be for the best overall film in the U12 Youth Category. We are looking for a film of any genre which is imaginative, original, engaging and entertaining. Strong stories and scripts are the foundation of a good film, so we’ll be particularly interested in this as well as how the overall film comes together and connects with the audience.

Prize: £500 towards equipment or training.

Entry Requirements:

  • Open to all primary schools, youth groups and independent filmmakers under 12 years of age.

  • Must be directed by the children; adults must only facilitate the filmmaking process.
