I am writing to let you know about Childnet's Film Competition 2012, and to encourage you to spread the word and encourage schools to enter. We are hoping to build on last year's success and see another batch of fantastic short films promoting the positive uses of the internet (previous winners can be seen on our website Childnet International
Positive and inspiring use of the internet is at the heart of our Film Competition 2012. Childnet is inviting all schools and youth organisations in the UK to enter our challenge. Two separate projects are in place for primary and secondary aged children. The theme will be revealed to entrants on Monday 16th April 2012.
All shortlisted finalists will then be invited to a private screening of their filmin front of our judging panel at the BFI in Central London, where they will be awarded some fantastic prizes for their schools/youth group!

Any advice and support that you could offer for this project would be greatly appreciated. I would be delighted to give you more information about our approach to engaging children and young people in digital citizenship.
