Heres how it works

Create and upload a 2 minute video on the theme then spread the word to get as many views,  ratings and comments as you can. Entries with the highest views and ratings get shortlisted for our judges who decide the winners. You must be registered on the site to view, rate and comment on each entry (once only per entry).  You must be 8 years old or over to enter. You can enter as an individual or a school or a youth group. If you’re under 18, you will need parental/guardian approval – but don’t worry, our online registration process on this website will guide you.

Competition Theme:

 

If you could change one thing about your digital life, what would it be?

We all have a digital life and can’t imagine a life without it.

So many good things happen online: easy access to information, social networks, gaming, apps, YouTube videos, online shopping, streaming music and more.

But like anything else, it’s not perfect.

There are trolls and hackers, ads we don’t care about, spam, fake news and what seems like a lot less privacy.

So, if you could change one thing about your digital life, what would it be?  Or are you happy with your digital life as it is?
