In order to encourage youth everywhere to get off their butts and take the time to create videos for the youth film festival, we award prizes to the participants in the different age divisions.
This year in addition to the great prizes which will be given for 1st 2nd and 3rd place in both the intermediate and junior divisions (18-25 years old and 11-17 years old respectively) we are awarding a non cash award of "Best Film in Genre" in each of three categories: DRAMA, COMEDY and DOCUMENTARY film.
The best films from filmmakers age 26 and older will also be selected and will shown online, but Senior Division filmakers will not be eligible for prizes. (After all, it IS a YOUTH film festival!)
Prizes for first 15 Video Submissions!
The First 15 people to register a qualified video* for the SikhNet Youth Online Film Festival and submit all the required info will receive:

Come to think of it, most film festivals charge YOU just to register and submit a film! We don’t do that. We want to encourage YOU to make a video and submit it to SikhNet on time, and offer you a chance of getting a unique gift to encourage you to get creative! By making a video you also have a chance of winning some of the below exciting prizes!
