One Minute to Save the World Winners

13th August 2019

PQATV and the Children’s Media Conference challenged young people under 19 to make a short on the theme: ‘One Minute to Save the World’. We asked for a film that’s authentic to them, about something they believe in, and to make us think.

On 31st August PQATV in partnership with the Children’s Media Conference held the screening and awards event for the inaugural competition. The event was attended by members of the CMC advisory committee along with the CMC’s Editorial Director Greg Childs who were on hand to offer career advise to the young creatives. The overall winner and runner up films were voted for by over 300 industry delegetes who attended this years conference. Also in attendance were two of this years BAFTA Changemakers Noga Levy-Rapoport and Brandon Relph who handed out a special Changemaker Jury award which was extra special as this was an an award for a young person voted for by their peers.
