The 70/30 Short Film Contest 2017 has now come to a close.
Entries for the contest came in over the school-term summer break and continued to be submitted late into October, including some fantastic short films from pupils at local Croydon BRIT school.
All young, budding film-makers between the ages of 16 and 18 from the UK had the unique opportunity to produce their very own short film for The 70/30 Campaign to help raise awareness of child maltreatment and the need for strategies which promote the prevention of such early childhood adversities. They were invited share the 70/30 message through the videos in as creative and unique a way as they could and entries certainly reflected that! The 70/30 Campaign at the WAVE Trust charity have been thrilled by the quality of films submitted and are very proud of the work being done on their behalf.
Although voting has now closed, you can view all short film entries by visiting The 70/30 Campaign’s YouTube channel. You are invited to help in supporting and acknowledging the work of our talented young film-makers by sharing their work through Twitter and Facebook using #7030ByMe
There are a variety of prizes on offers for those entrants who are selected including an incredible £1000 cash prize for the Overall Winner AND £750 for their school or college. The Popular Choice Award will receive the choice of a once-in-a-lifetime tandem skydive or an InterRail pass worth £200. Three runners up will be awarded an “experience day” of their choice.
Winners will be announced in December.
