As young people around New Zealand start making films for this year’s Someday Challenge last year’s winners are scooping up new awards.

For anyone aged up to 24 the annual challenge is to make a sustainability-related film of any genre, filmed with any camera and any length up to 5 minutes.

The prize package for each of the 20 winning films includes a commitment that it will be entered into at least one international film festival the following year.

So far in 2017 three of the winning films from 2016 have gone on to win further awards and another six have been nominated at film festivals in New Zealand and overseas.

The entry deadline for the Someday Challenge in 2017 is 8 September.

The film-maker or team behind each of the 20 winning films will be honoured at The Someday Awards red-carpet ceremony at Auckland’s Aotea Centre in December.

Someday Workshops are also now taking place throughout New Zealand, including Kaupapa Māori workshops and Pasifika-focused workshops.

The one-day and two-day film-making workshops run from 9am to 4.30pm on weekdays for young people from school years 7 to 13 (aged 11 to 18) as well as teachers and youth workers.
