This year’s theme is MY VOICE MATTERS. Send in a 2 minute video either talking directly to camera or interviewing other guests. The theme is a “hook” for your content and can be interpreted however you choose.
You might want to chat about how you get your voice heard, how to use your voice to influence change or sometimes feeling frustrated when your voice isn’t heard. Talk about something you care about and remember to bring your own unique style.
If you need inspiration visit our Children’s Mental Health Week series of films fronted by BAFTA Young Presenters here.
Entries will be judged on confidence, engagement with the audience, tone, relevance to subject, authenticity and uniqueness.
Entries are NOT judged on technical or production values.
Entry deadline: 17 April
