Childnet Film Competition 2018

Childnet Film Competition: 3rd April 2018
 
The e-safety charity Childnet International have launched their 2018 film competition for young people aged 7-18 with the theme: 'Connect with respect - a better internet starts with us!', inviting young people to create a short film to educate their peers about online safety.
The competition, which is in its 9th year is open to all schools and youth organisations in the UK.  The competition gives young people the opportunity to harness their creativity and share their understanding of online safety issues. These films are then used in schools across the UK to help teach about online safety.

The six films which are the most engaging, creative and which deliver the online safety messages the best will be shortlisted for the final. These six shortlisted entries (3 from secondary, 3 from primary) are then judged by an expert panel who decide who will take home the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophies.

Submitted films are then used in schools across the UK to help teach about online safety.
