Childnet Competition 2017 (closing date 8 June)

Childnet are challenging pupils aged 7-11 across the UK to create a 60 second film in response to this theme.  Open to all UK schools and youth organisations, Childnet’s annual competition invites all young people to take on the challenge of creating a short film about internet safety.  

Childnet are looking for creative, imaginative films which reflect a positive and inspiring message on the theme: Be the change - It starts with us.

Use comedy, animation, music, or how about creating an advert, documentary or news report? It’s entirely up to you but make sure that you stand out!

Shortlisted finalists will then be invited to a private screening at London’s BFI on Monday 3 July 2017, where the winners in both categories will be revealed by Childnet’s judging panel.

If you would like to enter the competition, you will need to fill in Childnet’s media consent policy, and email the form with your entry to

You may enter as a team (no larger than 8), but consent for each member must be signed by the parent/guardian of each child.

There are hint and tips that might inspire you, along with the consent form, below.

Entries may only be submitted by the school, who is registered with Childnet.  Any entries submitted later than Thursday 8 June to me will not be entered into the competition.  

Good luck!
