Do you love watching the latest films? Have you ever fancied trying your hand at being a film critic? Then our latest competition for year 10 and 12 students may be for you!
We would like you to write a film review for us, but we would like it to be written in either French, German or Spanish. It doesn’t need to be long (maximum 500 words) and we would like to know the following:
- Title of the film
- Who the main characters are
- A short synopsis of the film
- What you liked about it
- What you didn’t like about it
- How many out of 10 would you give it
The competition is open to all pupils in Year 10 and 12 in England with one winner for each year group. Winners will each receive a certificate and a £20 book token.
Each entry MUST be clearly marked on the back with the pupil’s name, age, year group, teacher and school. When sending school entries, teachers should provide a covering note with their contact details for ease of notifying winners. N.B. all entries will be disposed of in our confidential waste once the judging has taken place. Winning entries may be used for promotional purposes but only the year group and school name will be shown not the student's name.
All entries must be written in either French, German or Spanish.
Please note that entries cannot be returned, we advise making a scanned copy for pupils who wish to retain their work. In the event of insufficient entries of good quality, no prize will be awarded; the judges’ decision is final.
Please send your entries to: Film Review Competition, Routes into Languages West Midlands, Room MB777, School of Languages and Social Sciences, Aston University, Aston Triangle, Birmingham B4 7ET. If you have any queries please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0121 204 4720.
The closing date is 5pm on Friday 14 February 2020. Please note any entries submitted after this date will not be included and we are unable to extend the closing date for individual schools.
We are very grateful for the generous funding we have received from Santander Universities which has enabled us to offer these fantastic prizes.
