Bradford Council's 11th Annual Film and Animation Competition 2015

The ‘Film and Animation Competition’ is an annual event open to Bradford primary schools that subscribe to the Curriculum Innovation Team’s premium services and all special schools. The event is designed to showcase the digital media work created by pupils over the last academic year.

The competition final is a black tie event that this year will be held at Cineworld, Leisure Exchange Bradford.  All shortlisted entries will be shown on the big screen during an awards ceremony. Children, teachers and parents are invited to make up the audience and vote for the winners who are presented with an 'Oscar' and a prize.

This year’s final will be held on the morning of Monday 6 July.

There are three age ranges for the competition - Key Stage 1, Year 3/4 and Year 5/6. Entries are split into categories as follows - visual story, animation and film. The category ‘visual story’ expands 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.

We also introduced a new photograph category in 2013. This year each school can enter one quality photograph per age range based on the theme of 'School is Cool’. Note - schools must have entered at least one other category to take part in the photography category.

If your school would like to take part please visit The Innovation Centre website for further information and to register your interest. Please note the closing date to register your school to take part is Friday 8 May and completed entries need to be submitted by 19 June.
