The categories are:

  • Best Animated Short

  • Best ‘Short’ Short (less than five minutes in length)
  • Best Documentary Short
  • Best Horror Short
  • Best Drama Short
  • New category to be confirmed!

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Your film must have been completed after 1st January 2019 and have a maximum running time of 30 minutes

We hope that this competition and its prizes will support UK filmmakers in putting together their future projects, as well as connecting people in the industry.
