Please note registration has to be completed by Friday 27th April and the entry submission deadline is Friday 22nd June.
The competition is a celebration of any ICT driven creative work done in schools that culminates in the production of an animation, visual story or video / movie. The category 'visual story' is a new category expanding on the Photostory 3 category from previous years. Entries for this category combine images and sounds into a short film using any software including Photostory 3. If you think you have some suitable work to enter or think you will be able to create an appropriate entry before the 22nd June deadline then read the information in the categories section and then complete the online registration form.
Click this link for the online registration form and complete it with the necessary details; note that communication will be via e-mail and this website.
You need to make sure that you have parental permission for use of pupil images for any entries and you will be asked to confirm this when registering. If you do not have such a form in school please use / adapt the one here
You need to keep these safe and make the Curriculum Innovation team aware of any parents who do not sign so that their children's images are not captured on the day of the 'Finals' or used online.
Please note that it is the school's responsibility to ensure that any images, videos and audio they use in their entries adheres to copyright laws and you will be asked to confirm this when entering.
Once you have registered you have until Friday 22nd June to submit your entries by uploading them to a dropbox folder (full details of how to do this will be provided). Your entry should be in AVI or WMV format and not DVD format or online. The entries will then be viewed by our panel and a shortlist of finalists produced. Unfortunately we do not have time to show all entries at the Finals. Those successful schools will be notified and offered seats at the final to watch all the finalist entries in the competition. Any schools who do not reach the finals will also be offered tickets to attend the event.
The final will take place in the Pictureville Theatre at the National Media Museum in Bradford on the afternoon of Monday 2nd July (please note this has been amended from the original date of the 9th July) and is a black tie affair. At the final each school group is given an interactive voting pad and the audience then votes for their winners. Oscars, certificates and prizes are then presented to the winners.
