Autism Uncut Film and Media Awards
Autistic people are often misrepresented, stereotyped, or simply cut out altogether by the media. So we’re launching Autism Uncut, an awards ceremony to celebrate the best of TV, film and media that gives the public a greater picture of autism, the person and what to do.

The film awards

The brief: Create a short film (four minutes or less) on any autism topic. Learn more.

The deadline: 1 December 2016

How to enter: find out more.

What happens if you win?: find out about our awards ceremony.

About the film competition
Our Too Much Information film showed just one experience of autism. We're inviting aspiring filmmakers, film students and professional filmmakers to create original short films, to shed light on the real world of autism – uncensored and uncut – to help more people understand autism, the person and what to do. Looking for inspiration? Download our information pack below.

Enter now

Your film can be about anything to do with the world of autism (just make sure it's no longer than four minutes long). You might want to show how unexpected changes or social anxiety feel for autistic people, or how sensory overload can affect everyday life.

How to enter
You can enter your film into one of three categories:

  • aspiring filmmaker (people who are not film or media students or professional filmmakers)
  • student filmmaker (students attending a full or part-time course, or who attended a course in the last two years. You may be asked to prove attendance of your course when entering)
  • professional filmmaker (people whose paid occupation involves making films eg directing or producing).
Our judges are looking for as many entries as possible from film students, aspiring filmmakers and professionals, so please spread the word.

The deadline is 1 December 2016. Shortlisted entries will be announced at the end of January 2017.

The awards ceremony
Winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony in April 2017, where we will showcase all of the shortlisted films. Winners of our first ever Autism Uncut Awards will also receive a trophy.

We'll release tickets for the ceremony soon. If you'd like to attend, please register your interest by clicking on the button below.
