The Someday Challenge

The challenge is to make a short film about sustainability.

The Entry Deadline in 2018 is 14 September.

Watch the promo here.

And here is the Entry Form.

You can make your film individually or in a team.

It's up to you how you interpret ‘sustainability'. What does that word mean for you? The list of Special Awards (below) may give you an idea.

Anyone under 25 can enter the Someday Challenge.

In 2018 that means anyone born in 1994 or later who is a Citizen or Resident of New Zealand or studying or working lawfully in New Zealand.

The Toolkit contains all you need to enter, including the Entry Form. It also contains resources you may like to use to help make your film.

If you have a question about the film challenge the first place to look is the FAQ page. If the answer isn't there please contact us or ask your question on Facebook.

Meanwhile you could also go to one of the Someday Workshops. Each year about half of the winning films in the film challenge are made by people who have been to workshops. But you don't need to attend a workshop to enter the film challenge.


There will be prizes for:

Standout Winner
Chosen from this year's Winning Films by the Judging Team

Audience Favourite
Chosen from the Winning Films by a public vote

20 Winning Films
Chosen by the Judging Team

Chosen randomly by a computer


The Someday Awards red-carpet ceremony will take place in December in Auckland.

There will be prizes and certificates for the makers of the 20 Winning Films.

The Standout Winner and Audience Favourite will be announced at the ceremony.

The ceremony will also reveal which film has won each of the 20 Special Awards, which will be announced soon. They will be similar to last year's (below).
