The theme of this year’s inaugural Satisfied Eye International Film Festival (SEIFF) is Women in Film, inspired by the centenary of women voting rights. To celebrate, we are running a competition for school children (aged 4-16) to create a piece of work based around a female hero. The hero can be a historical figure, an existing fictional character or children can create a completely new fictional character. The only restriction is that the hero cannot be someone they know personally!

There are five categories: Reception, Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2, Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4. Children can interpret the female hero in any way they like. It could be a policewoman, an inventor, a superhero, an animal, even a female dragon! There are no limits to their imagination.
Reception: Pupils can submit a piece of art (it can be a drawing, painting or collage using any creative tools they like) the only restriction is that it must fit on a single sheet of A4.
Key Stages 1-4: Pupils can submit either a piece of art or a cartoon (same rules as above); a short story (maximum 300 words); or a short film or animation (no more than 60 seconds).
Winning entries in each category will be displayed at the festival and winners will receive specially-commissioned trophies and a selection of exciting prizes, presented by celebrity guests at the festival’s closing awards ceremony at the Queen’s Stand, Epsom Racecourse.
Prizes will be awarded by a panel of esteemed industry experts which includes Oscar, BAFTA and Emmy winners with credits ranging from Interstellar to Star Wars.
