We have teamed with the National Youth Film Festival Awards to showcase the best of teenage UK talent in a short-film contest.

The ‘Round My Corner’ competition focuses on family, friends and local neighbourhoods.

Shortlisted nominees will have their films put before a range of famous film sector professionals including The Iron Lady producer Damien Jones, film and TV director Ken Loach, producer Rebecca O’Brien, actor Toby Jones (The Girl, Hunger Games, Harry Potter) and Film 2013 presenter and writer Danny Leigh.

Winners will be invited to London to a glittering awards ceremony on November 8.

To enter you need to be up to 19 years old and produce a film no longer than three minutes based on what ‘Round My Corner’ means to you.

Editor Nick Woodhead said: “So many young people do so much impressive work on their phones. Video is now an established part of showcasing the lives we lead and the world in which we live.”

You only have until noon on Friday, October 11. For more details on how to enter go to www.fenlandcitizen.co.uk/youthfilm.

Your entry will also appear on our website after submission for all to enjoy.
