Leading online safety charity, Childnet, a partner in the UK Safer Internet Centre, has launched the ninth Childnet Film Competition to encourage young people aged 7-18 to create a short film to educate their peers about staying safe online.
Delivered by Childnet as part of its work in the UK Safer Internet Centre, the competition aims to encourage young people to have respectful interactions online and gives young people the opportunity to harness their creativity and share their understanding of online safety issues.
Judged by a panel of experts from the BBC, BAFTA, BBFC and BFI, the winning films will be shown at the finalists’ event in London and will be used as educational resources in schools across the UK.
This year’s theme focusses on how young people can ‘connect with respect’ and work together to make the internet a better place for children and young people.
