Entrants produce a new 90 second short film or animation from scratch around a different theme each year.

Winners are drawn from three age groups: Primary (up to 11), Secondary (11-18) and 18-25. Winners are awarded digital award certificates.

“Elstree Film Design’s approach as practitioners, rather than educators, resonates well with people who in turn have gone on to achieve so much more than they might otherwise have intended.  Elstree Film Design are also helping to create significant income generating opportunities, through the use of new technology, for young people and helping to develop vital transferable skills that are not always taught in schools.”
