BFI Launches "See Yourself on Screen" Challenge for Young People

18 May 2020

The See Yourself on Screen Challenge, supported by the BFI's Young Audiences Content Fund, is for young people aged 4-18 from across the UK to create their own idea for a mini-TV show they can film at home while on lockdown. Entry deadline is 25th May 2020.

BFI Launches "See Yourself on Screen" Challenge for Young People

The BFI's challenge initiative, backed by doctor, TV personality and See Yourself on Screen Challenge Ambassador Dr Ranj, will see winning entrants receive expert tuition before their mini-TV show is aired on national TV across the public service broadcasters.

The See Yourself on Screen Challenge is a pan-industry initiative, led by the BFI through its Young Audiences Content Fund (YACF), and supported by a collective of industry partners; Channel 5 Milkshake, CITV, E4, S4C, FYI News and TG4 are supporting as broadcaster partners, each airing a number of the mini-TV shows, while Animation UK, BAFTA Kids, Children’s Media Conference, Into Film and PACT are also backing the challenge.

Submissions will be judged by a panel of industry experts from each of the partner organisations, who will shortlist entries in three different age categories; age 4-7; age 8-13 and age 14-18. Judges from the broadcaster partners will then each pick three winning entries (one per age category), and these entrants will be offered digital masterclasses with an experienced figure from the television industry, who will help each finalist turn their idea into reality. The resulting two-minute mini-TV show will then be aired by one of the partner public service broadcasters later this year.

COMPETITION CLOSING DATE: Monday 25th May 2020 (12 noon)
