Childnet’s Film Competition 2013 – starting soon!

Childnet are hoping to build on last year’s success and see another batch of fantastic short films promoting the positive uses of the internet.

Positive and inspiring use of the internet is at the heart of the Childnet Film Competition 2013. Childnet is inviting all schools and youth organisations in the UK to enter our challenge. Two separate projects are in place for primary and secondary aged children. This year the themes will revisit the key messages from Safer Internet Day 2013.

Primary aged entrants: Will be challenged to create a 60 second film to tell us why ‘The internet is great, when you respect your mates’.

 Secondary aged entrants: Will be asked to create a 2 minute film in response to the theme ‘How do you connect with respect?’

If you would like to register a group of young people for the challenge please do so at

All shortlisted finalists will then be invited to a private screening of their film in front of our judging panel at the BFI in Central London, where they will be awarded some fantastic prizes for their school/youth group!
