The Guernsey Arts Commission is marking National Schools Film Week 2011 with a competition to find Guernsey’s best young film critic.
The competition is open to 4-19-year-olds in four different categories, with the top three in each category receiving book tokens of £10, £5 and £5 respectively, and the winning entries will be displayed in the Guille-Alles Library.
The four categories in the competition are:
- 4-7-year-olds – drawing/ painting representing a favourite film
- 7-11-year-olds – written review of 250 words
- 11-14-year-olds -written review of 250 words
- 15-19-year-olds – written reviews of 250 words
Entrants must have seen the film they review either as part of the National Schools Film Week programme or independently.
The competition is based on one run by Film Education in the UK as part of National Schools Film Week and has proved highly successful in the past and the Guernsey Arts Commission hopes a local version can help children in Guernsey to develop a greater understanding of both film and the written word and their relationship to one another.
National Schools Film Week 2011 takes place between 13th and 21st October and the closing date for entries is 21st October.
All entries should be sent to:
Guernsey Arts Commission,
Guernsey Information Centre,
St Peter Port
Or handed in at the Guernsey Information Centre and clearly marked ‘Young Film Critic Competition, Guernsey Arts Commission’.
