Every year the YCN gives the “European Youth Cinema Award” for the best talented young European filmmaker. From 2017 it will be given in three age groups:
age 0 - 14
age 15 - 19
age 20 - 27
Films for these awards are nominated by the member festivals of the YCN. Each festival can nominate one film per age group for the competition.
For the award each YCN member has one vote for each age-group (except for the nomination the member gave itself). The films with the best quotes in each age group will be the winners.
Every year the awards will be given on a different festival, it started 2016 in UK at the Wicked Wales Filmfestival.
