Childnet Film Competition - Deadline for entries 13th June

All primary and secondary schools as well as youth organisations across the UK are encouraged to make a film about using the internet positively


Childnet Film Competition 2016The Childnet annual film competition is now open to school children and students aged 7 – 18!

This year’s theme is all about how we can all make a positive difference online by supporting young people to ‘shine online’.

The team at Childnet have created a list of top tips for film making:



  1. Think – Think about the purpose of your story and what you want to say.

  2. Plan – Decide the style and genre of your film. Will it be a drama, documentary, animation, commercial or music video? Decide what equipment you will use to shoot your film.

  3. Plot – What’s your story going to be about? Prepare your script, storyboard or improvisation.

  4. People – Who’s going to be in your film? Who will your actors be? Who will you interview for your documentary and what models could you make if choosing to use animation?

  5. Film – Get creative but always remember to frame your shots and record any audio clearly. Always watch back and listen to what you’ve just shot in case you need to re-shoot! Try using a mix of wide, medium and close up shots to make it more interesting.

  6. Edit – Piece together your film and keep within the competition time frame. Make sure your story is clear with its message. If using music, be aware of copyright law!

  7. Send it in - Make sure your masterpiece is sent in by your teacher or youth leader and reaches Childnet by Monday 13th June 2016 either by DVD/ USB or electronically.
