Enter an IB student short film competition


We are running two student competitions with deadlines approaching in October. One asks MYP, DP and CP students to create a short film or poster that demonstrates academic honesty. The other invites DP and CP students to create a short film that profiles, celebrates, or honours an IB teacher or coordinator who inspires them to exhibit one of the IB Learner Profile attributes.

Calling all Middle Years (MYP), Diploma (DP), and Career-Related Programme (CP) students: submit a film or poster to our academic honesty competition.

We set the challenge to students to create a film or poster which delivers the key message that academic honesty is fundamental to the education of every IB student.

The winning entries will be showcased on this website and the students interviewed in a forthcoming edition of IB World magazine.

Deadline: 31 October 2016.

Profile and celebrate an IB teacher or coordinator

Teachers make a lasting impact on the lives of their students, and we would like to show our teachers that we appreciate them and the positive impact they have on us all. We are launching a student film competition, encouraging IB Diploma Programme (DP) and Career Programme (CP) students to create a three-to-four-minute film in English, French, and/or Spanish that profiles, celebrates, or honours an IB teacher or coordinator who inspires them to exhibit one of the IB Learner Profile attributes.

The grand prize winner will receive a complimentary registration to one of the 2017 IB World Student Conferences across the globe, a feature in our IB Global Newsletter, and a congratulatory letter from the IB Director General. The winner and two runners-up will also have their videos shown at all 2017 IB professional development and workshop provider events.

Deadline: 14 October 2016.

    Can MYP candidate schools participate as well? Our school already has an accredited DP.

  • Kate Taverner

    Hi Elizabeth, I’ve checked the competition terms and conditions and I’m afraid that students must be enrolled in an authorized IB World School. So your DP students can take part, but I’m afraid that your MYP students cannot on this occasion. I’m sure there’ll be more opportunities like this in future, so I hope you can get your MYP students involved then. Let me know if you I can help with any other queries.

  • Ryann Coules

    Hi, my friend and I are DP2 students who are equally splitting the work on the film. Can we both put our names on the registration? We are both applying to film schools and are planning to use this in our portfolios, so it might not work out if only one of us in credited in the competition. Thanks!

  • Kate Taverner

    Hi Ryann, I’ll check with my colleagues and get back you as soon as possible.

  • Kate Taverner

    Hi Ryann, up to four candidates may be credited as the creators of the video entry. Please note however that you will both need to submit individual entry forms. Please let me know if you require any further information and enjoy your film-making!
