‘Best Content for Kids’ is organised by the Insafe network within the European Commission’s Safer Internet Programme. The competition highlights existing great quality content for 4-12 year old children and encourages the creation of new content that will offer young people online opportunities to learn, play, discover and invent.
What ‘Positive Content’ can I enter?
Any form of online content can be submitted – including websites, blogs, games, apps, educational content, videos and other multi-media content, but it must be designed for use by children or young people. The content can be either newly created for the competition or content that already exists and is worthy of highlighting.
There are four categories of awards: 2 for adults, and 2 for children and young people
Non professional adults submitting online content designed for 4-12 year old children. (A non-professional adult is someone who does not create online content for a living or does not have a budget or income to employ professional help to do so. For example, teachers, social workers or related professions).
Professional adults submitting online content designed for 4-12 year old children. (A professional adult is someone who creates online content for a living or has a budget or income to employ professional help to do so. For example, companies but also museums with budgets etc).
Individual children or young people, or teams of up to 3 children (born no earlier than 31.12.1996) submitting content made for children and young people up to the age of 18.
School classes / youth groups (consisting of children born no earlier than 31.12.1996) submitting online content made for children and young people up to the age of 18.
A prize will be awarded to the first place winners in all four categories, with certificates given to second and third place entries. The four winning entries will then progress to the next tier and compete at the European level in their category. We are unfortunately not able to give feedback to entries, however all participants will be judged using the same criteria which is available to download and read before entering.
The national first prize winner in each category will go on to compete at the European level.
