​A chance for children and young people to create TV shows

17 June 2021

The 'See Yourself On Screen' challenge is back!

S4C is once again working in partnership with the BFI (British Film Institute) on this exciting challenge which calls for children and young people between four and 18 years old to create their own short programme with the winners receiving a mentoring session as well as seeing their video broadcast on S4C.

The initiative, which is led by the Young Audiences Content Fund, brings broadcasters together with CITV, E4, Milkshake on Channel 5 and TG4 in Ireland also taking part in the project.

S4C is calling on children and young people in Wales to create a short video and submit it before the closing date on 28 June. Candidates will have to make a 30 second video outlining an idea for a television show set 75 years in the future!

Stwnsh presenter Owain Williams will be the mentor again this year for S4C.

Owain said: "I would have been hugely excited if this competition had been around when I was a child, so I'm thrilled to be a part of it now by helping the stars of the future shine.

"Last year was a fantastic experience – the talent and creativity of young people is amazing! Seeing yourself on screen is more important now than ever before and I can't wait to work with this year's winners and to see their work on screen."

The aim of the See Yourself On Screen challenge is to try and encourage children and young people to engage with television, offering a chance for them to share their ideas and create children's television which is inspiring, informative and inclusive.
