Story Telling

A parent has thought of a unique way to encourage reading. Their children are reading to family members using the wonders of technology. It is a creative way of keeping in touch with family and to motivate them to read more.

Enter the 2020 film competition from home

The Childnet Film Competition is now in its 11th year and is open to all young people based in the UK. The challenge is to create a short film or a storyboard with a script in response to this year’s theme.

This year’s theme:

We want an internet where we’re free to…

What are we looking for?

We are looking for films or storyboards that tell us why you want an internet that allows people to feel free and safe online and how we can make this happen. Once again we’re on the look-out for films with a positive and clear message about the ways we can use of the internet.

There are 3 different categories this year:

  • Solo category – Young people make their own film, with minimal support from an adult.

  • Group category – Work with friends or family to make a film.

  • Storyboard category – Create a short storyboard and script for a film.
