Childnet’s Film Challenge was launched last year and received some great entries from young people. Childnet are hoping to build on last year’s success and see another batch of fantastic 60 second films promoting the positive uses of the internet (previous winners can be seen on at http://www.childnet.com/film/).
Positive and inspiring use of the internet is at the heart of Film Challenge 2011 and we at Northern Grid know from our visits to schools and entries to our awards that there are many great examples of this going on in the region.
Childnet is inviting all schools and youth organisations in the UK to enter the challenge. Two separate projects are in place for primary and secondary aged children. The theme will be revealed to entrants on Tuesday 26th April 2011.
All shortlisted finalists will then be invited to a private screening of their film with a judging panel at a cinema in London and will be awarded some fantastic prizes!

Competition opens: Tuesday 26th April 2011 @ 9am
