Future filmmakers get ready, the Childnet Film Competition 2024 launches today!

29 Sep 2023 Becca Cawthorne

This year Childnet is celebrating 15 years of championing youth voice through the Childnet Film Competition! This creative competition attracts enthusiastic young filmmakers aged 7-18 from across the UK, who demonstrate the power of using storytelling to promote online safety.

Enter the Childnet Film Competition 2024

Are you aged 7-18 and passionate about film? Can you tell a good story, create animation or inspire positive change? Or do you work with young people? Are you a teacher, youth worker or media tutor who can support a group of young people to make their film?

If so, then Childnet would love you to enter their 15th annual film competition!

Win filmmaking equipment for your school or youth group and the chance to connect with film industry experts at an awards ceremony in London!

Last year, winners met some of Childnet’s prestigious film panel made up of leaders from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA), the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC), the BFI, BBC, the Motion Picture Association (MPA) and Disney!

Childnet would love all young people to share their ideas about online safety. So find out how to enter their Primary (7-11 years) or Secondary (11-18 years) film categories now!

15 years of championing youth voice

Will Gardner OBE, CEO of Childnet and a co-Director of the UK Safer Internet Centre, says:

“I’m really proud of all the winners, finalists and entrants over the past 15 years of the Childnet Film Competition. Their wonderful films have inspired and encouraged generations of young filmmakers to tell their story and to become part of important conversations around online safety.

“2023’s Safer Internet Day research showed that young people want to make a difference through speaking up, helping their friends, and promoting online safety, and I believe our film competition gives young people the chance to have their say and increase online safety awareness in their own unique voice and style.”
