Young Presenter Competition - now closed!

Our competition in partnership with First News is now closed! We'll be announcing the winner very soon.


Do you want to be the next Ant and Dec? Can you work a camera like Dermot O’Leary or Tess and Claudia? The BAFTA Kids Young Presenter Competition in partnership with First News is back, ready to offer someone just like you the chance to win a once in a lifetime prize!

We’re looking for someone to film with the BAFTA production crew at the BAFTA Children’s Awards in November.  

You’ll go behind-the-scenes of the awards to find out how the night all comes together, and you never know who you might end up interviewing on the red carpet!

We’re looking for someone aged 7-14 who is friendly and engaging, with a passion for presenting. Sound like you?

To enter, we want you to create a short film (2 minutes maximum) interviewing an older friend or family member about their first film, TV or games memory. It can be a parent, grandparent, teacher, neighbour, older brother or sister– anyone!

In your video, please:

  1. Introduce your subject
  2. Ask your subject to tell you what their first film, TV or games memory is
  3. Find out more about the memory - how old were they? Where were they? Who were they with?
  4. Why do they remember it? Is it a special memory for them? Has it influenced their taste in film, TV or games?
  5. Use the line “reporting for BAFTA Kids” either at the start or end of your film

Top Tips for your video:

  1. Speak clearly so we can hear you talk
  2. Be enthusiastic – we want to see how great you can be!
  3. Listen and be interested in your subject.  If you’re interested – your audience will be too!
  4. When you’re happy with your video, upload it using the submit form below. 


 Entries will be whittled down to a shortlist, and the shortlist will be judged by an exciting celebrity jury who will choose one overall winner in October.

Good luck!
