Young Presenter Competition 2022
BAFTA’s Young Presenter Competition is open for entries!
This year, we’ve changed our age categories to 10-14 and 15-18, which means we’re on the lookout for two winners. Create a short video on this year’s Children’s Mental Health Week theme – Growing Together – and submit here for your chance to win. If you want inspiration on the theme of well-being and emotional growth, take a look at the Virtual Assemblies hosted by Lindsey Russell and Emma Willis, featuring Oti Mabuse, Kia Pegg and Kit Young.
Winners have the opportunity to host BAFTA’s content for children and young people as well as attending special events at BAFTA’s London HQ. Previous winners have gone on to interview A-list stars at various BAFTA events, including Tom Hiddleston and BAFTA President HRH The Duke of Cambridge, as well as presenting on popular children’s television shows and at events around the world.
