Entries have closed for the Rookie Awards 2018.

Security Update – Accepting Password Protected Videos

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Rookies is now accepting password protected videos for “Film of the Year” categories in 2018. 

In previous years we have limited Film of the Year entries to those that can be viewed publicly. Having spoken to a number of schools and students, we have made the decision to overturn this ruling moving forward. This means all films can be securely submitted to our judging panel and still remain private until your film has completed it’s festival circuit.

As with all film festivals, we recommend that where possible, student’s and teams upload additional supporting material that the Rookies’ community would enjoy seeing. When your film has completed it’s film circuit and we have your blessing, we will then share your finished film and promote it as widely as possible.
