The Young Creative Awards is our flagship program aimed at the young generation of audiovisual creators who are dedicated to the fight against climate change.

Our goal is to bridge the gap between the different generations in the audiovisual sector, to create a link between the energy of young, committed creators and the experience of more established professionals who have been working in the industry for many years.

Last year we received more than 500 applications from all over the world. We expect around 800 applications this year, in 2024, and much better visibility of the competition and the awards ceremony within our networks and those of our media partners.

Who can participate?

The competition is aimed at beginner filmmakers under the age of 30, of all nationalities, with a strong interest in the environment and/or social causes.

How is the winner selected?

The Young Creative Awards will award a trophy to the best film according to the following criteria: the originality of the production, the technical quality (image, editing and sound) and the effectiveness of the message to encourage the public to take concrete action on environmental issues.

Why enter the competition?

The winner will benefit from high international visibility among leading audiovisual professionals (producers, directors, environmental experts) and the general public.

How to participate?

You have time to register your film on the FilmFreeWay platform until April 28th 2024

The 2023 winner

Winner film

La bride (The dog's leash)

Director: Nicolas Piret

The bell tower rings and the birds fly away.

In the countryside on the outskirts of a small village, a dog tied to a very long rope, watches them disappear in the horizon.
It’s time for him to go;
Prance across fields;
How far will his rope allow him to go ?

Nicolas Piret : Director, Writer, Composer
Vincent Gilot : Producer (Atelier de production La Cambre)

Country of Origin : Belgium
