Right Here, Right Now Winners

17th August 2020

The Right Here, Right Now competition asked young filmmakers to make a 1 minute film about about who they were, a film that would make the jury sit up and take notice, a film that shows us their world.

Run in conjunction with the Children’s Media Conference, the Competition was open to any young person aged 21 or under from the UK, PQA students and non PQA students alike.

Last month we announced the 15 Finalists and its now time to announce the winners!

The two main winners were selected by an industry panel made up of a select amount of delegates from the CMC. The two winners will receive a DSLR camera kit.
