Rules of the Competition


1. The competition is open to any student or groups of students in full time education in the UK primary and secondary school systems of England, Northern Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and the Channel Islands, in 3 age-group categories: 7-11, 12-15, and 16-18.


2. The video produced should be approx. 3 minutes long and must be a new original piece of work realised in 2018-19. Any style of music will be accepted provided that the song is performed in French, but NO COPYRIGHTED MUSIC OR VIDEO CAN BE USED.


3. By participating in this competition all competitors give their consent for the entries to be mounted on the Francophonie UK YouTube channel. PLEASE SEEK ADULT’S GUIDANCE - it is the competitor’s responsibility to make his/her parents aware of this.


4. The video must be submitted by the students’ teacher via www.wetransfer.com to francophonieuk@gmail.com in one of the following formats: MOV, MPEG4, AVI or WMV, together with completed entry form and parent consent FORM, and by the closing date of 5th April 2019. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.
