A new addition to Leeds Young Film’s line-up of competitions, the Young Animator of the Year Award continues their tradition of supporting young creatives who are passionate about film. Every UK-based filmmaker up to the age of 14 years old can enter in one of two age categories, with winners receiving £100 towards their next film and shortlisted films being shown at a fantastic event at the festival.
